Sweets for the Sweet!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries!!!

16 ounces milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening
1 pound fresh strawberries with leaves

Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries. 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. Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into styrofoam for the chocolate to cool.
Or you could get fancy with the orange & black colored-chocolate for Halloween that's coming up! I seriously might do this!
