Innovative and exotic, the Stuffed Pears with Toffee Sauce is sure to catch the fancy of all your guests! A soul-warming dessert with the pleasing flavour of pears, the delectable crunch of coconut and the rich mouth-feel of toffee, this dessert ensues a slightly different preparation process, but is not too difficult to make.

Peeled and cored pears are stuffed with an awesome mixture of coconut, pistachios and pear pulp, and baked till the pears soften. This is then drowned in a luscious toffee sauce, and served warm, much to the pleasure of everybody who tastes it!.
