Ghastly Pear Ghosts
9 medium ripe Bosc pears
2 packages (14 ounces each) caramels
1/4 cup water
2 pounds white candy coating disks
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons shortening, divided
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside. Wash and thoroughly dry pears; insert a popsicle stick into the top of each.
In a microwave, melt caramels and water; stir until smooth. Dip each pear into caramel mixture; turn to coat. Place on prepared pan; let stand until set.
In the same microwave, melt white candy coating and 2 tablespoons shortening at 70% power for 1 minutes; stir. Microwave at additional 10 to 20 second intervals, stirring until smooth. Dip pears into coating; allow excess to drip off. Return to pan; let stand until set.
