Chocolate Covered Goodness

I had this desire come over me when I was standing in Ralphs grocery that I should make chocolate covered strawberries. The strawberries are huge and lusciously red looking, so I couldn't resist.
This "recipe" is compliments my good friend Krista Morrison... bittersweet chocolate chips

washed and dried strawberries

a little bit of shortening mixed with the chips and melted in the microwave because as Krista told me, it helps to prevent the chocolate from burning which it happens more often on the stovetop.
Mmm thanks for the tip Krista!!

Dip the strawberries and voila!

You have this!

And this!
Happy Cooking!
