CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES

 

 INGREDIENTS:

1 lb. Milk or Dark or White Chocolate

1 Tbsp. Shortening

25 Large Strawberries     (with stems & leaves if possible)

DIRECTIONS:

  •  Wipe the Strawberries with a damp cloth; refrigerate for at least one hour.
  •  Heat the Chocolate and the Shortening in a double boiler over hot water until smooth, stirring frequently.  Keep warm.
  • Alternatively, heat in the Microwave, 1 minute at a time; stir after each minute.  This should take no more than 1 – 2 minutes.
  • Line a tray or jelly roll pan with waxed paper.
  • Dip each Strawberry into the melted Chocolate to cover as much of theBerryas possible.  Place on a lined tray or in paper candy cups.  Chill for 10 minutes.

Note:  For a ‘Do-It-Yourself Fondue type, each person can dip their own berry and eat it as soon as the chocolate cools down.  There is nothing as decadent tasting as  yummy, runny chocolate
