  • 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.
