YIELD Makes about 12 strawberries
It's important that the strawberries be completely dry before dipping to prevent the chocolate from discoloring.
|2||cups (11-1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips|
|12||large strawberries with stems, rinsed and dried|
- Line baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside.
- Melt chips with shortening in top of double boiler over hot, not boiling, water, stirring constantly.
- 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.
- Store in refrigerator in airtight container between layers of waxed paper.
