    Think fancy-looking desserts are too much of a hassle to bring to a potluck? Think again! Ginger-Poached Pears With Chocolate Sauce may look elaborate, but they’re actually really easy to put together. Everything can be made in advance and packed up. When it’s time to go, simply drain the syrup from the poached pears and gently pat dry. I love the classic combo of soft pears and velvety chocolate, and can’t think of a better way to enjoy both.?

    Preparation

    Cut parchment paper into circle slightly smaller than base of large saucepan; set aside.

    In same saucepan, bring 5 cups water, sugar, ginger and cloves to boil; boil for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, peel pears; using melon baller or teaspoon, remove core through bottom. Trim bottoms, if necessary, so pears stand upright. Add to liquid; stir in lemon juice. Top with parchment paper circle, making sure paper is in direct contact with pears and helping to keep them submerged.
