    The Original Cranberry Juice Cocktail


Combine cranberry juice cocktail and sugar in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Place pears in pan. Cover and simmer on low heat for 10-15 minutes or until pears are tender when pierced with a fork. Turn pears several times during cooking. Remove from heat. Let cool in liquid at room temperature. Combine cranberry sauce and chocolate chips in a medium saucepan. Melt over medium heat, whisking occasionally until smooth. Remove pears from liquid; drain. To serve, spoon 1/4 cup chocolate cranberry sauce on each serving plate. Place pears on plates. Spoon remaining sauce over tops of pears. Makes 6 servings.
