Winter White and Spring Green Tea Party: White Chocolate Strawberries

This simple recipe makes a pretty Valentine treat too!

1 bag (12 ounces) white baking chips
1 tablespoon shortening
18 large strawberries with leaves

Cover a cookie sheet with waxed paper. Heat white baking chips and 1 tablespoon shortening in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted.

For each berry, hold by the stem and dip into the melted chocolate, leaving the top and leaves uncovered. Place on the waxed paper. Refrigerate about 30 minutes to set the chocolate.
