Won the Thanksgiving Cranberry Cook-off!
We get together with another family each Thanksgiving and pick a secret ingredient that has to go together with cranberries. This year the secret ingredient was chocolate. I won, hands down. My wife, who doesn't readily compliment my desserts, says we should put this recipe on our "dish list" to make again and again. Pretty easy, although 15 minutes of simmering wasn't nearly enough to soften the Bartlett's we bought; it was more like 30 minutes, and I substituted dark chocolate chips. BIG HIT!
delicious chocolate sauce
I'm going to admit I haven't made the pears, but this chocolate cranberry sauce is soooo good. I make it with dark chocolate instead of milk and pour it on ice cream or pound cake. yummy!
