1/2 (750 milliliter) bottle
pears, peeled with stems intact
semisweet chocolate chips
So easy, yet so elegant. My family loved these and they make a great presentation. I will be serving these at some up-coming ladies luncheons. Thanks Christina.
I think the chocolate is gilding the lily. Consider using port in place of the champagne, and leave out the orange, use brandy in the whipped cream.
Very yummy and easy. I followed the suggestion of another user and added add the grand manier to the chocolate. But don't! Otherwise the chocolate will freeze up and get chunky. I had to throw it away. Instead, drizzle it over the final dessert. Also, i used wine instead of champagne.
I made these when my parents came to dinner and my dad said they were the best pears he ever had! I added a little splash of grand marnier to the chocolate and it was fantastic.
very sophisticated. It's easy and yet wows your guests
We loved this recipe. I used chocolate carbernet sauce instead of chocolate chips. Very nice dish!
I only used the champagne, cinnamon stick, and a cup or so of diet cran-grape juice. Really good!
