This recipe for pears poached in champagne with chocolate raspberry sauce is a combination of two recipes that I came across…. I love the pears and champagne.. and I love raspberry and chocolate…. This is really very easy and looks spectacular.
You only need about a teaspoon of Grand Marnier drizzled on each pear.
I hope you like it.
Pears Poached in Champagne with Chocolate Raspberry Sauce Recipe
All you need:
½ (750 ml) bottle champagne
1 cup orange juice
1 cup white sugar
4 slices orange
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 pears, (Bosc) peeled with stems intact
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Polaner Seedless Raspberry All Fruit (spreadable fruit) or seedless raspberry dessert sauce
All you need to do:
In a large saucepan, combine champagne, orange juice and sugar over medium heat.
Add orange slices and vanilla.
Bring to a boil, and stir until sugar is dissolved.
Place pears in the saucepan and reduce heat.
Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove the cover and simmer an additional 30 minutes.
Remove the pears from the liquid and let cool.
Heat the chocolate in the microwave until melted.
If using the raspberry spreadable fruit, heat it in the microwave until melted.
Stand the pears up in a plate (if the pear doesn’t stand up evenly, cut a small flat piece off the bottom).
Drizzle the chocolate over the pear so it drips down the sides of the pear.
Drizzle a little melted raspberry over the pear so it drips down the sides of the pear.
Drizzle a little Grand Marnier over the pear.
Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream flavored with vanilla and Grand Marnier next to it on the plate.
