Red Wine Poached Pears with Chocolate Filling Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: May 21, 2014
Made this for Mother's Day and it was a hit! I used both Bosc and Anjou pears and found the Bosc to work better. I topped the pears with a tablespoon of mascarpone before drizzling the sauce over the dish. Next time I'll us a bit of corn starch after removing the pears for a thicker sauce but I wouldn't change anything else. The sauce that this makes is AMAZING and would stand on it's own as a topping for ice cream or cheesecake which could make for some interesting pairings.

Very easy and supper yummy! I was able to poach 6 pears with the recipe above. I dug out extra pear flesh from the core area for extra chocolate filling.
