Put the sugar, honey, wine and spices in a pan and bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat and add the peeled pears. Cover and simmer until the pears are soft and translucent. Cool.

While the pears are cooking, put the broken chocolate in a bowl.

Heat the cream in a pan, until almost at boiling point.

Take off the heat and add the chocolate. Mix carefully until melted and well combined. Allow to cool slightly.

Pour over the pears and serve immediately.

If you do not want to eat the pears immediately place in an airtight container and store in the fridge for 2 to 3 days. Delicious eaten cold with natural yoghurt for breakfast.
