I’m excited to start sharing some of the food from the Frozen birthday party with you guys!  My favorite???  This caramel and chocolate covered pears, or Olaf Pears!  When I was at Walt Disney World for a conference in March I got to see these cute chocolate and carmeled covered apples decorated to look like Olaf… They were adorable, BUT the round shape wasn’t really olaf like more traditional snowman.

easy and adorable olaf pears, covered in caramel then chocolate they are delicious and everyone loves them

So when I was at the grocery store one week doing my grocery shopping and I walked past the pears and I remembered seeing this amazing video from Lumineux studio, Harvest Gathering.  I remember Jenner, the videographer, talking about how amazing the salted caramel pears were.  So I thought PERFECT!  Just the right shape AND tasty too!

So I started by washing all the pears, then sticking them with caramel apples sticks.  (Try not to let them slit, if they do the caramel won’t stick well, in fact it will keep oozing under the caramel and chocolate and cause problems later)

Then melt about 8-10 oz of caramel and dip your clean and dry pear into the caramel.  Give it a good swirl, making sure it’s all covered, then let it drip a bit.  once the largest drips are gone scrap the bottom off…

Hold it upside down to let it set a bit, then place it on parchment paper.  Do this with all your pears and let cool (I refrigerated mine for a little bit to hold their shape better).

Do the same thing with the melted white chocolate and you can see the head already taking shape!  I let the pears rest however they wanted, since trying to get them all upright was a bit of a struggle.

I had Lego Boy roll out a bunch of fondant noses for me.  They aren’t all the same and they aren’t all perfect, but that’s what makes them so great!!! I think they all made great “carrots” this way.  I considered adding some orange sugar to give it a sparkle, but opted against it.

I used some of the melted white chocolate to connect the noses to the pears.  Then I added some black gel food dye to turn the chocolate grey.  Then I attached the candy eye’s with the grey chocolate.  And finally I pipped the grey chocolate on as the mouth!  I TOTALLY forgot the EYEBROWS! GAH… oh well

The kids LOVED them and they tasted AMAZING!  I will warn you, make sure you buy your pears the day before and use them right away they ripen FAST and start to get gooey/mushy quickly.  These are not something you can make way ahead of time, they do NOT keep.

      Awww thanks!!! Seriously I saw the apple Olafs at Disneyworld and then remembered hearing that caramel pears taste even more amazing and it went from there!

    These are so cute in the pictures! However, I tried making them and they didn’t turn out like the pictures—harder than it seems. :(

      what part did you have a problem with? You have to make sure that your pears are BRAND new, they are so much softer than apples that they are easy to be too just pop off the sticks, and get too goopy. Try only doing it halfway in the caramel (so you can keep your hand on the pear). Make sure the caramel is high quality and warm enough that it is a nice thin layer, if it’s too thick it will keep running off the pear over night and cause more problems later. Anyway, I’m just guessing that the caramel was the tricky part (cause it was def the tricky part for me)
