This was not good- wasted the chocolate chips. It was too thick and did not stick.

I figured it would be even healthier to use dark chocolate and skip the shortening. I kept the chocolate over the double boiler as I worked to keep the chocolate warm and easy to work with. These were both lovely to look at and delish to eat! I washed and blotted my berries dry, then left them to air dry a bit longer so they wouldn't be damp at all and prevent the chocolate from sticking. I placed them on parchment once dipped. I had no problems whatsoever and they came out great!
