For the coating:

  • In a microwave safe bowl, add chocolate chips and shortening. Heat for 1 minute. Stir and continue heating for 10-15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating and stop just before all of the chocolate is melted.
  • Stir until completely melted. Remove 3-4 balls at a time from the freezer, leaving the others in the freezer until ready to dip
