  • Ingredients

1 pound strawberries
16 ounces milk chocolate chips
2 tbs shortening (the shortening makes this)
    Ingredients

    1 pound strawberries
    16 ounces milk chocolate chips
    2 tbs shortening (the shortening makes this)
  • In a bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and shortening together for 30 seconds. You don't want to melt them all the way or they'll burn. 
Remove the bowl and mix. You'll be surprised how fast they melt together. The consistency should be quite watery.

  • Dip the strawberries into chocolate. Use a toothpick. Then stick it into styrofoam to dry. 
I didn't use a toothpick and just put them on a plate to dry. As you might expect the chocolate dried onto the plate. No big deal.  I just did the dipping process again for DOUBLE CHOCOLATE!
