Ingredients

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


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.
