Chocolate Covered Strawberries

1 cup of chocolate chips (Ghiradelli or Enjoy Life for dairy free)
1 TB of shortening or coconut oil (I use Tropical Traditions Palm Oil shortening - order online)

Combine the above ingredients in a sauce pan on low stirring continually. Heat just until melted. Let cool slightly. Wash strawberries then pat dry with a paper towel before dipping.  

Hold strawberries by the stem and dip in chocolate.  Place on a plate or baking sheet that has been covered with parchment or wax paper. 

Place in fridge to cool and set for about 30-60 minutes. Store leftovers in the refrigerator in a container. Eat within 1-2 days. We have no problem with this!

This is usually enough to cover one pint of strawberries.  If we have a little chocolate left over, I dip some popcorn, pretzels, or almonds in the remainder.

You can use a thin vanilla frosting to drizzle a design over the strawberries after they have set for decoration.
