  • 2 medium sized pears peeled, cored and chopped
  • 50 ml – 1.7 oz. maple syrup
  • 100 gms – 3.5 oz. dark chocolate melted
  • 15 to asted hazelnuts crushed


  1. Put the chopped pears and the maple syrup in an oven proof dish and bake in a pre heated oven at 200°C – 390°F for 30 minutes or until caramelized (you can also finish off the pears under the broiler for 5 minutes if they are not caramelized to your liking).
  2. When ready, blend the pears and put the mousse in the shooter glasses. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
  3. When you want to serve the mousse, crush the toasted hazelnuts and melt the dark chocolate. Divide the melted chocolate among the shooters and top with the crushed hazelnuts.
  4. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

If you want to fully prepare the mousse ahead of time, use Nutella or chocolate sauce instead of melted chocolate (which hardens again if kept in the fridge).
