admin's picture
Unique Pears With Chocolate Sauce are simple but irresistible! I served it for a party last week and the guests loved it. Try this Pears With Chocolate Sauce recipe!
  Water 1 1⁄2 Pint
  Caster sugar 6 Ounce
  Vanilla pods 2
  Cloves 4
  Ripe dessert pears 6
  Dark cooking chocolate 12 Ounce, broken into pieces
  Water 6 Tablespoon
  Butter 1 1⁄2 Ounce
  Double cream 3 Tablespoon

In a medium sized saucepan, combine the water, sugar, vanilla pods and cloves.
Place the pan over moderate heat and bring the water to the boil, stirring constantly until the sugar has dissolved.
Boil rapidly for 1 minute.
Peel the pears, leaving the stalks on.
Slice about 1/4 inch from the larger ends so that they can stand upright.
Place the pears upright in the syrup, reduce the heat to low and poach them for 15 to 20 minutes or until they are tender but still firm.
Remove the pears from the pan and place them on a serving dish.
Set aside to cool completely.
Meanwhile, make the chocolate sauce.
In a heatproof bowl, combine the chocolate and water.
Place the bowl in a pan of simmering water over low heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth.
Gradually beat in the butter and cream.
Remove the pan from the heat and the bowl from the pan.
Pour the sauce over the pears and serve at once.
