Everyone loves chocolate covered strawberries. But you can't dip them in any old chocolate. Use your microwave to easily melt HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Bars for the perfectly sweet, smooth dip for your strawberries.
Cover tray with wax paper.
Place chocolate chips and shortening in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1-1/2 minutes or just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred; cool slightly.
Holding strawberry by top, dip 2/3 of each berry into chocolate mixture; shake gently to remove excess. Place on prepared tray.
Refrigerate until coating is firm, about 30 minutes. Store, covered, in refrigerator. For best results, use within 24 hours. Coats about 5 dozen small strawberries. (About 1 cup coating)
Be sure the strawberries are dry before dipping.
*Butter, margarine and spreads contain water which may prevent chocolate from melting properly; oil may prevent chocolate from forming a coating.
