To melt chocolate chips, you can use the microwave or a double broiler. If using a microwave, melt in 15 second increments at 50% power. Stir every 15 seconds until chocolate is melted. Be patient and stir often to avoid burning. If you do not have a double boiler, you can use an oven safe bowl over a pan filled with water on the stove top to melt your chocolate.
Crush candy cane with meat cleaver or gently roll with a bottle. Crush pretzels with hands.
