Chocolate, Pear & Hazelnut Baked Porridge

Chocolate, pear and hazelnut is a (three way) marriage made in heaven… chocolate and pear always work, and the hazelnuts create a divine connection between the two flavours.

The added touch of the pear fan on top leaves the middle of this baked porridge gooey and moist, but still with the slight crunch of sweet roasted hazelnuts.

This is a delicious (and decadent) breakfast that will fill your kitchen with chocolatey, nutty aromas!
