Valentines Raspberry and Pear Fool


1 pear peeled, cored and chopped
1 tablespoon maple syrup
16 ounces heavy cream
1/2 bar finely grated dark chocolate- I used Green& Blacks with hazelnut


In a pan bring the berries, pear and maple syrup to the boil, then simmer for about 5 minutes. Whiz up with a blender, sieve and let it cool. Whip the cream until soft peaks have formed. Put a spoonful of the fruit syrup into the bottom of each glass or pot, then add the remainder of the fruit syrup to the cream, lightly fold in. Put cream in glasses, then finish with the grated chocolate and nuts.


These little fools make an easy, quick dessert for your little and big loves this Valentines Day. As fresh berries are not in season, well not here in the icy Northeast, so I used frozen berries.
