This is the easiest version of chocolate covered strawberries I know.
makes approx 20
8 oz milk chocolate chips
1 T shortening
about 20 fresh strawberries with leaves
Gently wash the strawberries under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel or dish towel. Set aside.
Insert toothpicks or other type of cooking stick into the tops.
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth.
Holding the strawberries by the sticks, dip them into the chocolate and gently coat most of the strawberry being careful not to get it on the leaves.
