Cut pears into slices that are 1/8 inch thick using a madoline or knife. Use the tip of the knife or a toothpick to flick out any seeds that remain.
Place slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 1 hour.
Turn over slices (gently peeling from paper if necessary) and bake for 30 minutes more or until slices reach desired crispness. If the slices are on the thick side it may take up to an hour to become crisp.
Melt chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler on the stove-top.
Allow melted chocolate to cool so it's not "hot" to touch.
Dip each slice in the chocolate and allow excess chocolate to drip off.
Place pear chips on a wax paper and allow chocolate to set.
