  • Betty Crocker™ colored sugar or decors, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Line jelly roll pan, 15 1/2x10 1/2x1 inch, with waxed paper. In 1-quart heavy saucepan, heat chocolate chips and shortening over low heat, stirring frequently, until smooth; remove from heat.
  • 2
    Dip any of the assorted dippers 3/4 of the way into chocolate; sprinkle with sugar. Place on waxed paper in pan.
  • 3
    Refrigerate uncovered about 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

    Use 3 squares (2 ounces each) vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark), cut up, for the chocolate chips.
  • tip 2
    Dip into melted chocolate chips, then drizzle with melted vanilla-flavored coating or sprinkle with crushed candies.
