Chocolate Drizzle Poached Pears Recipe

Chocolate Drizzle Poached Pears recipe


This is a sweet treat made with soft pears cooked in a tasty liquid. Then, we pour warm chocolate on top. It's yummy with ice cream and a little bit of salt!


4 ripe Bosc pears
200 g granulated sugar
150 ml red wine
1 vanilla pod, split and seeds scraped
1 cinnamon stick
120 g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
60 ml heavy cream
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
A pinch of sea salt flakes


Peel the pears, leaving the stems intact. Slice a small piece from the bottom of each pear so they stand upright.
In a saucepan large enough to hold all the pears, combine the sugar, red wine, vanilla pod and seeds, cinnamon stick, and 500 ml of water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.
Place the pears in the simmering liquid, cover, and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the pears are tender but not falling apart.
Carefully remove the pears from the liquid and set aside. Increase the heat and reduce the liquid by half to create a syrup, then remove from heat.
For the chocolate sauce, combine the chopped chocolate and heavy cream in a small saucepan. Melt over low heat, stirring until smooth.
To serve, place a pear on each plate, drizzle with the chocolate sauce, and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt flakes over the dessert.
