4 Firm Pears, peeled and stalks removed
1 tbsp Caster Sugar
1 Vanilla Pod
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
100g/4oz Plain Chocolate (check ingredients)

If necessary, cut a thin slice from the bottom of each pear so they can stand
upright without falling

stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
Bring to the boil then add the pears. Reduce the heat then simmer for about 15 minutes
until just tender.

a slotted spoon, transfer to a dish, cover and refrigerate for several hours. Reserve
When almost ready to serve, break the chocolate into a heatproof mixing bowl and
add the butter. Place over a pan of simmering water and stir until melted.
Remove the pan from the heat and beat in 3 tablespoons of the reserved pear
To serve - arrange the pears on a serving platter, standing them upright. Place
scoops of vanilla ice cream between each one then spoon the hot chocolate sauce over
the top of the pears. Serve immediately.
