Pear and chocolate, my favorite combo at this time of the year! I have made some chocolate pear crumbles year after year, promising myself that I would one day share this yummy recipe with you, but each time, the dessert disappears even before I say it!
And then finally it happened: I published the recipe for you! But it didn’t happen as I expected. I mean, the recipe you see here is not my usual pear and chocolate crumble recipe. This time, some magic happened and brought the recipe to the next level, with an American twist (I baked it in Chicago).
First, the taste is slightly different since I added some gingerbread cookie crumbs (I used the famous Swedish Annas pepparkakor, but you can use any other gingerbread cookies of your choice, or Speculoos biscuits). I had never thought of that before but gingerbread, pears and chocolate are just a Wow combination all together!
Then you have some additional extravagant crunchiness to the recipe, thanks to the pecan nuts combined with the other nuts. Pecan nuts are way cheaper in the US than they are in Sweden, so I could use a lot of them. I even brought some pecans back in Stockholm: I now have a mini pecan paradise at home. I know it might seem silly for you but I’m pretty excited about that (call me crazy foodie)!…
