Poached Pears with Dark Chocolate Drizzle

  • 4 Ripe pears Use a firm variety like Bosc
  • ¾ Cup Unsweetened apple juice (180 ml)
  • ½ Cup Red wine (140 ml)
  • 3 Sticks Cinnamon

Spiced Chocolate Sauce

  • 2 Oz Dark chocolate (48 g) roughly chopped
  • ½ tsp Pumpkin pie spice mix


  • Poach the pears: Peel the pears then cut them in half lengthwise, then remove their cores. Place them cut side down in a saute pan. Pour in the apple juice, wine, and cinnamon sticks.
  • Place the pan on medium-high heat and bring the liquid to a simmer. Cover and let cook for 5-7 minutes, until cooked through but firm – poke them with a fork to test.
  • Flip the pears over and cook another 1-2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the pears from the pan and onto serving plates.
  • Place the chocolate and spices in a microwave-safe bowl and place in a microwave. Heat until smooth, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted. Drizzle over the pears to serve. YUM.
