Directions

  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.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I tried making this, but the sauce still remained runny after trying to heat it to the "consistancy of cream". I'm not sure if I made it properly, but it didn't taste as great as I hoped.

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 I increased the temp which helped get it there....Be careful though because the sauce will pass the creamy point and change to thick real quick. I noticed when I remove the sauce from the heat for a few seconds it thickened up. All in all this is a tastey recipe with poor directions.
