16 oz of milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons of shortening
1 lb of fresh strawberries with the leaves on it
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth. Holding them by the toothpicks, dip the strawberries into the chocolate mixture.
Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries.
Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into Styrofoam for the chocolate to cool.
*Note: If you don't have a double broiler you can take a pot of boiling water and place a glass mixing bowl over it and place the chocolate inside the mixing bowl and that will also work as a double broiler.
