This easy, elegant looking dessert recipe is another example of how to create something delicious to eat with whatever ingredients you already have on hand.
We both wanted dessert. There were three local pears in a bowl that had to be used, like, now. Bruce said “I can poach them in simple syrup.” That sounded good. I said, “I have an open can of sweetened condensed milk, a new bag of chocolate chips, and a little heavy cream left. I have an idea!” ***
Poached Pears with Condensed Milk
& Chocolate Ganache
He peeled the pears, then poached them in boiling sugar and water. Then we cooled the poached pears in the freezer for 10 minutes. Just before serving, Bruce heated the heavy cream over a double boiler, and folded an equal amount of chocolate chips into it. He drizzled the cooled pears with sweetened condensed milk, and then the ganache. I sprinkled a small amount of raw sugar over it, just to make it glisten.
That’s It! It couldn’t be easier!
We just threw this together with what we had, and it was FABULOUS!
I mean, lick the bowl fabulous. :p
