  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Place pears in a small ovenproof pan. Mix orange juice with 1/4 cup sugar and pour over pears.
  3. Cook in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes; occasionally turn and sprinkle remaining sugar over pears. Remove pears from oven when soft and let cool.
  4. Pour orange juice mixture into a medium saucepan and simmer over medium heat until mixture thickens to the consistency of cream; remove from heat.
  5. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt chocolate. Add a few tablespoons of hot milk if the chocolate becomes too thick to stir.
  6. Put each pear in a small bowl. Pour the creamy orange sauce over each pear, then drizzle chocolate on top; serve warm.

While the final product tasted great, the journey there was long, sticky and very tedious. I wouldnt recommend this recipe unless you've got the right equipment.

While the final product tasted great, the journey there was long, sticky and very tedious. I wouldnt recommend this recipe unless you've got the right equipment.

The pears would not soft in the oven even though I increased the temp to 325. I ended up putting them in the microwave for 5 minutes on high and they soften up nicely. While thickening the sauce...

The final product has a wonderful taste. However, the orange sauce does not heat to the consistency of cream. I don't understand why you are to cook it for 40 minutes and then all of the sudden...

It seemed unlikely to me that 2 cups of cold juice could heat up, and cook pears, in a 300 F oven in a total of 30 to 40 minutes -- and it didn't. Next time I will pre-heat the orange sauce in a...

This dish has potential. The flavor and texture of the pear was great! I'd recommend using sweetened chocolate.

This was pretty tasty. I read the over reviews so was prepared to augment the temperature. I baked the pears in a tagine in the oven at 180°. I made a couple of ingredient substitutions: agave s...
