Directions

  1. Line a large baking sheet with wax paper. Wipe strawberries clean. Dry with paper towels.
  2. Place semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon shortening in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on Medium (50% power), or defrost setting, 45 seconds. Stir. Repeat until chocolate is soft and shortening is melted. Stir until mixture is smooth. Repeat process with white chocolate and remaining 1 tablespoon shortening.

My husband's co-worker made these for our wedding reception, and they were absolutely AMAZING! They were the hit of the event, and I don't think there was a single one left at the end of the night.
