Sliced Pears with Orange Chocolate Dip

Sliced Pears with Orange Chocolate Dip
8 servings, 16-20 appetizers

If serving the pears on a buffet, cut into 1/4-inch slices, and toss in a large bowl with lemon juice to prevent browning. Put the dip in a serving bowl on a platter, and surround it with the pears.

1 15-oz. container ricotta
3 Tbs. orange marmalade
2 Tbs. orange liqueur
1/4 cup finely chopped semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
4 large pears, preferably red Bartlett
1 lemon, halved

Mix ricotta, marmalade, liqueur and chocolate in bowl until combined.

Slice each pear in half lengthwise, scoop out core and make 1/4-inch slices from round end almost to stem. Place pear halves cut side down on plates. Fan out slices; sprinkle with lemon juice.

Place 3 tablespoons of dip on each plate and fan pear half on top.
