11 Poached Fruit Recipes to Please Any Sweet Tooth!

I am a chocolate girl. If dessert doesn’t contain chocolate, well, it’s not dessert, right?

My friend Faye is a very talented pastry chef. One night when she had us over for dinner, we had poached pears for dessert. I must admit I was a little disappointed that the dessert I would be getting from Faye was FRUIT … at first. But then? Then … Faye brought out the poached pears, drizzled in a homemade crème fraîche sauce. Even this chocolate loving fool knew the dessert sitting in front of me was something to be savored and loved!

Some poached fruits are delicious all on their own, while others take an otherwise simple or boring dessert to a whole new level of deliciousness.
