STEP ONE: Select large firm pears. Peel pears, leaving the stems. Core from the bottom, leaving a 3/4-inch hole. Bring the white wine, sugar, and seasoning to a boil in a saucepan. Place the pears in the wine and simmer until tender. Be careful not to overcook. Set aside and let the pears cool in the wine. STEP TWO: Chocolate Sauce-- Put cream, chocolate, powdered sugar, butter, and strong coffee in a double boiler and heat for 30 minutes or until the chocolate is melted. Mix well. STEP THREE: Drain the pears, spoon the chocolate sauce in a nice stem glass or a bowl, and place the pears in the center. Garnish with fresh mint leaves. CHEFS NOTE: These pears are excellent served over French Vanilla ice cream and topped with chocolate sauce.
