semi-sweet chocolate chips
( or you can use dark, milk chocolate, bittersweet)
colored sprinkles, your choice of color
nuts, finely chopped
- In a 1-cup glass measure, heat together chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave oven on High about 1½ to 2 minutes, or until chocolate is melted and smooth when stirred. Or you may heat in a double boiler(I just place a pan that fits slightly in another pan that has boiling water and stir till melted and smooth).
- Using a fork, dip each marshmallow into chocolate over a cup. Place marshmallows 1 inch apart on a wax paper-lined baking sheet; immediately sprinkle sprinkles or the nuts on top, if using.
- Refrigerate until chocolate is firm, 45 to 60 minutes. Store, covered, in refrigerator. Enjoy!
