Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Chocolate covered strawberries are just about the easiest, most elegant and classy dessert finger food you can make. Making them your self is unbelievably cost effective, when you consider the price you pay at a favorite chocolate store or candy company. They look fabulous at any occasion and taste amazing!   I don't know anyone who doesn't love chocolate covered strawberries!  Chocolate covered strawberries also make a delightfully beautiful gift.

11.5 ounce bag milk chocolate chips, (Ghirardelli and Guittard are my favorite)
2 tablespoon shortening
30 large ripe strawberries with stems attached

Melt chocolate chips and shortening in the top of a double boiler.   Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Dip ¾ of strawberry into melted chocolate and lay on parchment lined baking sheet to dry. Place in a cooler area and allow chocolate to set.
