Easy Chocolate Treat

These are a tasty and quick treat. I enjoy making these if I don't have enough time to bake and need to bring something to a party. 

What you need

1. package of oreos
2. Chocolate Chips
3. Shortening
4. Sprinkles if wanted

and a microwave safe bowl, spoon, wax paper on a cookie sheet 

To start : Place chocolate chips into microwave safe bowl and add about a tablespoon of shortening ( this helps keep the chocolate to a smooth and easy to dip ) place in microwave and time it for 1 minute on high. Then stir all the chocolate and place in again for 30 seconds, stir. If its not completely melted yet add another 30 seconds. Just pay attention because chocolate burns fast. 

Have your wax paper on your cookie sheet ready and once the chocolate is ready start dipping!

 add sprinkles if desired 

Then let them harden in the fridge

Then serve on a pretty plate stand

 For me one average size bag of chips landed about 18 chocolate covered oreos

These also make great foodie gifts 

 Have a great day!
