Ingredients
  • 4 candy canes
  • 1 cup Enjoy Life Foods Semi-Sweet Mega Chunks (dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free) chocolate
  • 4 large pears
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Place candy canes in a Ziploc bag; seal and crush using a wooden spoon. Transfer broken candy canes to a food processor; pulse until candy canes resemble a powder.
  3. Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl; heat in the microwave until melted, approximately 2 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, slice each pear into 4 slices.
  5. Remove melted chocolate from microwave; mix well. Immediately dip pears into the melted chocolate; coat each pear slice only ½ way. Allow excess chocolate to drip off, then lay flat on the parchment lined baking sheet.
  6. Sprinkle crushed candy canes onto the melted chocolate part of the pears; place in the refrigerator to cool for 15-20 minutes. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
