Almond Chocolate Poached Pears Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
this was a great dessert! The presentation was lovely and the flavors elegent! I recomend using more wine and less water for the sake of saving time when reducing. I used ground spices in a tea bag and just eyeballed the measurments but reduced the amount of cardomom asked for by half and it was delish! If you dont have time to let the pears cool, the freezer works great!! Lastly, rolling the chocolate covered pears in almonds didnt turn out. Sprinkle the almonds on and then carefully press them in. This recipe is great!! Will do again!!

I really don't know what to say about this recipe. I couldn't even find some of these ingredients in the local grocery stores, so I left a lot of it out. I haven't tasted it yet, but my friend said it came out great. I suppose, we shall see. 3 stars for the recipe's potential.
