1 shortcrust pastry
1/2 cup of butter
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of almond powder
1 cup of dark chocolate

In a large bowl filled with water and ice create a 3D tree with the melted chocolates. Place in fridge to set for at least 30 minutes.
Place the shortcrust pastry in a baking dish. Mix the butter, ½ cup of sugar, the almond powder and the eggs to obtain the almond cream. Place in the bottom of the shortcrust pastry. Poach the pears in 1 liter of boiling water with ½ cup of sugar. Place pears on the almond cream. Bake for 25 minutes at 350F.
