Chocolate Tuesday--Is it Too Hot for Chocolate??

Heidi and I were talking about all the dedicated "days" we used to enjoy participating in. Herb Thursdays, Food Fridays, Chicken Tuesdays, and I brought in Chocolate Tuesdays and Healthy Mondays.
These have pretty much stopped do to lack of interest and participation, I do though like to post for these on occasion when the mood strikes me. This week I think I will post for a few of these, if anyone would like to join in, please add a link to your blog in comments-and leave open for everyone to read.

Dress up fresh fruit for a special occasion. Imagine how elegant a tray of bite-sized, chocolate dipped fruit will look at your next gathering -- and how amazing they will taste.

Chocolate Dipped Fruit

1 (6-ounce) box NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE� Premier White Baking Bars, or semi-sweet chocolate baking bars
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
24 bite-size pieces fresh fruit (
strawberries, orange, kiwi, banana or melon), rinsed and patted dry
  1. Line baking sheet with waxed paper.
  2. Microwave morsels and shortening in medium, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10 to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth; cool slightly.
  3. Dip fruit about halfway into melted baking bars; shake off excess. Place on prepared baking sheet; refrigerate until set.
Makes 24 pieces.
For a Fancy Drizzle: Microwave 1/2 cup NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Premier White or Semi-Sweet Chocolate morsels or baking bars, broken into pieces in small, heavy-duty plastic bag on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; knead. Microwave at additional 10 to 20-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle over fruit. Refrigerate until set.
