With fall season in full beauty, I am craving more and more fall themed food, and these Caramel Dipped Bosc Pears are no exception. While caramel apples seem to be the “go to” fruit when it comes to caramel dipping, I encourage you to try Caramel Dipped Bosc Pears as they are truly delicious. This is such a sweet and healthy snack, that you can indulge into even when a midnight cravings strikes. They are crisp, crunchy, sweet and juicy. Also, the pears flavor pairs perfectly with the caramel sauce. Also, they are so easy and fun to make, that this would be such a fun project to do with kids. Bonus points to the fact that you won’t feel guilty by feeding them some healthy dessert! After all, they are having fruit in this case!

I made some of my famous caramel sauce, that literally takes only 10 minutes to whip together. After the sauce has cooled slightly, I dipped the bosc pears into it. If you prefer your pears plain, go for it. Because the caramel is more than enough to turn the pears into a real treat. But if you are looking for something extra, roll the Caramel Dipped Bosc Pears into some crushed nuts or sprinkles for some extra texture and fun.

In addition, they retain their shape and texture better than other pears, and their flavor is less likely to be overwhelmed by the use of strong spices like cinnamon, clove or nutmeg. Also, they are perfect to be enjoyed as a fruit snack, since they are quite healthy and delicious.

Caramel Dipped Bosc Pears are healthy and indulgent, especially when rolled in some crushed pistachios.


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature and cut up into pieces
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 bosc pears
  • 1/2 cup grinded salted pistachios


  1. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat melt sugar while stirring constantly until a brownish liquid forms.
  2. When sugar has completely melted, add the butter and stir until well combined.
  3. Carefully while still stirring add the heavy cream, once all the cream has been added let the mixture boil without stirring for one minute.
  4. Remove from heat, stir in salt and let it cool a little.
  5. Dip bosc pears into warm caramel sauce, scraping off any excess from the bottom with a spoon. While the coating is still warm, coat with preferred garnishes: nuts, chopped chocolate or sprinkles. Refrigerate right away for the garnishes and coating to stick to the pears.
  6. I used crushed pistachios and only dipped the bottoms of the pears, it’s a personal preference.
