- Peel the pears, cut in quarters and remove cores. Cut the peaches in half and remove the stones. Place the pears and peaches into the boiling liquid. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the fruit is tender but not soft. (The skin on the peaches should have peeled away.)
- Remove the fruit and leave to cool to room temperature. Boil the liquid to reduce to 1 cup.
- Strain the liquid and cool. Roughly chop the fruit and place in the chocolate cups. Drizzle with the reduced syrup.
NOTE: If using the microwave to melt chocolate, it’s better to err on the side of caution by choosing a lower power setting and doing it in several bursts. Progress to higher power when you are well experienced.
