We are up early and on our way out to Friday School (homeschool co-op). Today my Willy Wonka class is making chocolate dipped treats like chocolate covered potato chips, dried mango, fresh strawberries, pretzels and pretty much anything that will induce a chocolate coma. I used to think that all you had to do was melt the chocolate and dip but there is a little secret ingredient that makes the chocolate smoother and easier to work with. If you get the urge to dip today, try it out. Your kids will love the treat!
Chocolate for Dipping
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening
Over a double boiler slowly melt chocolate and shortening together until creamy. OR....use the microwave on 30 second intervals stirring between settings. As soon as chocolate is melted dip your goodies in half way and cool on wax paper. Chill in fridge for 5 minutes and enjoy.
