Chinese five-spice powder adds intrigue to the classic paring of pears and chocolate. We prefer Bosc pears for their firm texture. Don’t peel the pears—the russet-toned skins contrast nicely against the creamy-white interiors of the fruit. If you like, serve with vanilla ice cream or gelato drizzled with chocolate sauce.
