Place chips and shortening in the top of a double boiler or in a bowl that fits snugly over a saucepan. Over hot not boiling water, stir frequently until melted and smooth. Use for dipping or molding. Makes enough for 40 to 50 chocolate-covered candies or 18 to 20 small molded candies.
Refrigerate dipped or molded candies until set. Release molded candies from molds. Store finished candies tightly covered in the refrigerator.
