    In microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High about 1 minute or until chocolate can be stirred smooth (bowl will be hot). Drizzle chocolate over snack. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Store in airtight container.

  • For easy melting and drizzling, place chocolate chips in microwavable small resealable plastic food-storage bag; seal. Microwave on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds or until chips appear slightly melted; squeeze bag until chips are completely melted. Force chocolate into corner of bag, and use scissors to snip off a tiny corner. Squeeze bag to drizzle chocolate.
