    3. 3
      Boil 10 more minutes (or until tender, but NOT mushy--they should still be firm), gently turning several times.

      Allow pears to cool to room temperature in the syrup.
    5. 5
      Heat cream, butter and chocolate over medium heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is disolved.

      Add a little bit of the syrup from the pears and the liquer and whisk until the sauce has a smooth texture, not too thin.
    7. 7
      Place pears in serving bowls or dessert cups, and cover with chocolate sauce.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle with just a bit of freshly ground black pepper.

      OOOOHHH!!!!! This was soooo good!! I doubled the syrup & pears & had enough chocolate sauce. I also used Belle de Brillet - FANTASTIC pear brandy. The pepper is subtle but fabulous! We absolutely loved ths dessert which was mostly made ahead & perfect for WOWing guests! Made for Port & Pimenton: Tag and Plan a Tapas Party Menu CONTEST.
