Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Drain the pears (keeping the syrup) and cut each half in half. Tip into a dish or ovenproof pan about 22cm across. Drizzle 2-3 tbsp of the syrup from the can over them.
Melt the butter and syrup in a saucepan, then stir in the oats and a pinch of salt. Quickly mix in the chocolate, but don’t let it melt. Tip the mixture over the pears.
Bake for 30 mins until golden and crisp. Cool for 5 mins before serving with some double cream or ice cream, if you like.
