- 1 pound, milk chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons, vegetable shortening
- 1 pound fresh strawberries (with stems if possible!)
In a double boiler (or just place a glass bowl over 1" of simmering water in a pot), place the milk chocolate chips and vegetable shortening and stir until melted and combined. Lay out a sheet of wax paper to let the chocolate dipped strawberries harden post-dipping. Grab a strawberry by the stem and dip into melted chocolate until desired coverage is acheived. Lay strawberry to harden on wax paper. Repeat until all strawberries are coated. Then go back and eat the first one you dipped. (at least that's my addition to the recipe).
