They are enormously flavorful, with warm, rich chocolate flowing over their spiced deliciousness. They're also surprisingly light, as far as chocolate desserts go.
So don't be deterred by how long and involved they appear to be. It's mostly spices, a little mixing and stirring and a lot of simmering - which, as we know, doesn't require anything on your part.
It's not only my mom and I who like them.
They also have mini's stamp of approval... though she only conceded to eating the pears after sucking up all of the chocolate sauce.
What can I say. She takes after her mother.
