Chocolate Dipped Pecans

These quick sweet and salty treats are a great gift idea.

1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vegetable shortening
50 Pecan Halves

In small microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and shortening. Microwave (high) for 1 minute. Stir until melted and smooth. Dip pecan halves into chocolate, covering only half the pecan. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm. Use as a garnish.
