This is super-simple, but it’s always handy to have on hand; let’s say I’ve seen chocolate dipping go horribly wrong when people use butter or margarine instead of shortening or cooking oil! You can dip fruit, graham crackers, marshmallows, cream puffs, or your finger in this chocolate and it will maintain a nice, smooth consistency.
1 12-oz. package chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. shortening or cooking oil
Melt together in a double boiler or in the microwave, 1 minute at a time, stirring regularly until desired consistency is reached.
