Chocolate Covered Pear Waffle Cone


By Lori Taylor

It doesn’t get much tastier than a big scoop of ice cream in an ice cream cone. But what if we found a way to avoid the guilt of eating an ice cream cone?! Ice cream cone, meet pear. Pear, meet ice cream cone. Who would have ever thought that putting a pear into an ice cream cone would be so delicious!

Substituting ice cream for a pear makes this treat much healthier, yet still contains enough sweet ingredients to get your dessert fix 🙂

With this pear dessert, you don’t even have to cut the pear at all!
