YIELD Makes about 12 strawberries

It's important that the strawberries be completely dry before dipping to prevent the chocolate from discoloring.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
12 large strawberries with stems, rinsed and dried

PREPARATION:

  1. Line baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.
  2. Melt chips with shortening in top of double boiler over hot, not boiling, water, stirring constantly.
  3. Dip about half of each strawberry in chocolate. Remove excess chocolate by scraping bottom of strawberry across rim of pan. Place strawberries on prepared baking sheet. Let stand until set.
  4. Store in refrigerator in airtight container between layers of waxed paper.
Tip
Stir chopped dried fruits, raisins or nuts into any remaining chocolate; drop by tablespoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with waxed paper.
Variation
Melt 8 ounces white chocolate or pastel confectionery coating. Dip bottom of dipped strawberries, leaving a portion of the milk chocolate coating showing.
