Ingredients

  • 8 pears
  • 8 sticks
  • 1 lbs caramel
  • 10 oz white chocolate
  • blue candy (oil based) food dye or a few blue chocolate wafers
  • 4 oz chocolate
  • 2 oz orange fondant
  • 16 candy eyes
  • piping bag

Instructions

  • So I started by washing all the pears, then sticking them with caramel apples sticks.  (Try not to let them split, 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.
  • Roll out a bunch of fondant noses in your palm to create the carrot shape.  
  • I use some of the melted white chocolate to connect the noses to the pears.  
  • Then add some blue food dye to turn the chocolate very light blue - or you could ad a few blue chocolate wafers melted to achieve the same effect.  
  • Then I attached the candy eye's with the light blue chocolate.  Then pipe on his mouth.
  • melt the normal chocolate and pipe on eyebrows. You can also pipe chocolate branches onto parchment paper and once they set add them to the top of the pears (maybe make them first if you want to go that route)
