Elegant and easy. I got this out of one of my community cookbooks, but it tastes like something a restaurant in Atlantic City New Jersey used to make.
- 1 cup whipping cream, well chilled
- 2 tablespoons Sugar
- 1 (29 ounces) can Pears in heavy syrup, drained,reserve 2 1/2 ounces of syrup
- 4 ounces German cooking chocolate
Whip cream until thick, add Sugar and continue to whip until thick.
Drain Pears well.
Melt chocolate with reserved syrup.
Put Pears in a large bowl, a glass bowl makes a nice presentation.
Cover Pears with whipped cream.
Cool chocolate mixture, then pour or spoon chocolate carefully over whipped cream.
