  • In a heavy small saucepan, melt chocolate pieces and shortening over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Cool slightly. Using a fork, quickly dip balls, one at a time, into melted chocolate. Draw the fork across the rim of the saucepan to remove excess chocolate. Return candies to baking sheet. Chill until the chocolate has hardened, about 30 minutes.
