Necessity is the Mother of Invention!

Twas the night before Easter. . . . and I was ready to dip my strawberries in chocolate when I discovered NO STYROFOAM in the house!!!   Not sure what others do to dry their chocolate covered strawberries, but in desperation I sliced raw potatoes in half and it worked!   
Like little islands with chocolate strawberry trees!

Easy Chocolate Covered Strawberries

20 large-medium sized strawberries with stem/leaves
1 cup chocolate chips
1 T shortening

Make sure strawberries are clean and thoroughly dry.
Melt shortening in a small glass bowl.
Pour chocolate chips into melted shortening and stir.
Microwave 30 seconds and stir until all is melted.
Stick toothpicks into top of strawberry and dip in chocolate.
Stick other end of toothpick into styrofoam (or raw potatoes cut in half!) until dry.
