DIPPING CHOCOLATE FOR CANDY

Ingredients

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz Hershey bar broken into pieces
  • 1 tbsp Crisco shortening

Directions

  • Melt in double boiler and dip.
  • I have also used a large bag of chips and added a tbsp of Crisco shortening to that.
  • I like the shortening better than the wax. It doesn't have that waxy taste.
  • Chocolate will get white or have white spots when it is in heat or cold. That is just the nature of it, but there is nothing wrong with it - just looks yucky!

Notes

This was the recipe for the chocolate coating on my recipe for chocolate covered cherries. I liked it so well, I now use it for most of my dipping.
