Holiday Desserts-Glamorous and Easy

This continues to an all time favourite!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

16 oz Milk Chocolate Chips
Or 16 oz Dark Chocolate
2 tbsp shortening (the original recipe called for paraffin)
1 pound fresh strawberries*

1. Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries
2. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth. Holding them by the toothpicks, dip the strawberries into the chocolate mixture.

Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into Styrofoam for the chocolate to cool. White chocolate may be drizzled over the chocolate for a fancier look.

Serve along side 1-2oz of Erie Shore Vineyard’s Vidal or Cabernet Icewine
