In 1-qt saucepan, melt 2 teaspoons shortening and chocolate chips over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat. Spoon melted chocolate over brooms, leaving about 1”at top of pretzel handle and bottom halves of cookie bristles uncovered. 4. In small microwavable bowl, microwave butterscotch chips and 1/2 teaspoon shortening uncovered on medium-high (70%) for 30 to 50 seconds, stirring after 30 seconds, until chips can be stirred smooth. Drizzle over chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is firm before storing.
