Baked Pears with Chocolate Sauce

Ingredients
4 small pears with stem intact (use pears that are ripe but not too soft)
2 tablespoons orange juice
4 teaspoons nonfat chocolate sauce (such as Hershey’s)

Directions
Peel pears. Partially core from bottom leaving the stem intact. If necessary, take a small slice off the bottom to make it flat so the pear can stand without tipping. Pour orange juice onto a plate and roll the pears in the juice to coat. This will prevent browning. Arrange pears in a covered 2-quart microwave-safe casserole. Microwave on high for 3 minutes, rotating ¼ turn halfway through cooking time. Let sit 5 minutes. Cool in refrigerator until chilled. To serve, place a pear on a plate with the stem up and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
