Looking to make your own Chocolate Covered Strawberries? Try this delicious and easy recipe made with HERSHEY'S CHIPITS Dark or Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.
Cover tray with wax paper.
Place chocolate chips and shortening in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1-1/2 minutes or just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred; cool slightly.
* Butter, margarine and spreads contain water which may prevent chocolate from melting properly; oil may prevent chocolate from forming a coating.
Holding strawberry by top, dip 2/3 of each berry into chocolate mixture; shake gently to remove excess. Place on prepared tray.
Refrigerate until coating is firm, about 30 minutes. Store, covered, in refrigerator. Coats about 5 dozen small strawberries. (Makes about 1 cup (250 mL) coating).
