Ingredients

  • 2 cups (12 oz. Package) of Hershey’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening (use Crisco; do not use butter, margarine or oil)
  • Fresh strawberries with stems, rinsed and patted dry (This usually covers 2 pints of strawberries)

Details

Preparation

Step 1

Cover tray with waxed paper. In medium micro-wave-safe bowl, place chocolate chips and shortening.

Microwave at High (100%) 1 ½ minutes or just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred; cool slightly (I don’t)

Holding berry by top, dip 2/3 of each strawberry into chocolate mixture, shake gently to remove excess.

Place on prepared tray.

Refrigerate until coating is firm, about 30 minutes. Store, covered, in refrigerator.

**Note: Butter and margarine contain water which may prevent chocolate from melting properly and oil may prevent chocolate from forming a coating.
