  5. After 15 minutes, pour the liquid over the pears and let sit for 10 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile heat jcoco 80% Dark Chocolate  and coconut oil in a double boiler over medium heat, whisking constantly until the chocolate is melted and smooth. 

  7. When ready to serve, drizzle melted chocolate over each pear and sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Serve with whipped cream (optional.)
