What a taste treat these little beauties are! You can use canned lychees but you must drain & dry them very well I like the texture of fresh best. I also stuff as much ginger into each lychee as I can.
Put the chocolate& shortening in the top of a double boiler, stir over simmering water until the chocolate has melted, allow to cool slightly Dip stuffed lychees into the chocolate carefully remove with a fork& tap lightly to remove surplus chocolate Place lychees on an oven tray lined with wax paper, place in fridge to set.
Drizzle any left over chocolate over the chocolated to make a little pattern Keep refrigerated until you are going to serve them.
