Made these for a Valentine's day treat and they turned out perfect. The bag of milk chocolate chips I had wasn't quite 16 oz so I topped them up with some semi-sweet ones resulting in a chocolate combination. As others have suggested, I melted the shortening first in the microwave and then added it to the chocolate as I started to melt it on the stove.
I also melted white chocolate chips to be able to do the stripes. I did add a bit of shortening to the white chocolate but not as much as I did to the milk/semi-sweet chocolate. In other reviews, people had suggested not using any shortening at all with the white chocolate so I didn't want to make the white chocolate too runny. I didn't have any issues and was very pleased with the results.
