    So yummy sounding and looking, plus pretty much what I was in the mood for. And since I actually had all these ingredients, I just went into the kitchen to make this. But… a puzzler: the ganache is dripping right off the pear! How do I get it to stay on as well as hold the nuts to it?

    For what it’s worth, I only use half of the coconut oil because I’m not crazy about the taste and the mixture was alreay plenty liquid enough. But now I’m wondering how more or less oil will affect the sticking-ness of the ganache. I imagine it’d be even drippier if I used more oil? Any thoughts?

    These pears are so beautiful! With all the heavier desserts that appear in the fall and winter, something like this sounds so light and so yummy.
