Chocolate covered pears is a dessert that perfectly combines different textures and flavors. The freshness of the pear and the sensuality of the dark chocolate, poured hot over the juicy fruit, make this simple recipe an irresistible one.
1Syrup the pears:
wash and scald the pears in boiling water for 2 minutes, rinse with cold water and drain. Peel and core, keeping the stem. In a saucepan, dissolve the sugar with water over moderate heat and bring to boil, cooking for about 10 minutes.
2Add the pears and the vanilla flavoring and cook over a low heat for 7-8 minutes, pouring the syrup over the pears. If the syrup isn't thick enough, cook until reduced, then pour over the pears.
3For the topping:
melt the chocolate in a double boiler, add the cream, butter, sugar and chopped hazelnuts, mix using a wooden spoon. Pour the hot topping over the pears, each on its own serving dish.
Enhance the garnish with pistachio crumbs and writing made with melted chocolate.
