Try caramel pears instead of caramel apples this Halloween or fall! We used a shortcut to make our caramel sauce — simply microwave soft caramel candies with some half-and-half and get dipping! Pouring your caramel sauce into a wide mug and dipping your pears directly inside it also saves you the hassle of a messy cleanup afterwards.


  1. Microwave 10 ounces unwrapped soft caramels with 1 tablespoon half-and-half, stirring every 20 seconds, until smooth. Pour into a wide mug, then quickly dip 4 pears in the caramel, sprinkle with chopped pistachios and let set on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
