Do you ever have one of those days where you look at your life and realize that it needs some, well, life? It feels dull. Beige. Boring. That happened to me the other day, so I painted my tan walls green, and I made some three musketeer bars. Nothing cheers you up like a little color and some chocolate. These are light, smooth, divine.
2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 8-oz. container Cool Whip, thawed
2 c milk chocolate chips
2 T shortening
Line 8-inch square pan with wax paper. Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave another 15 seconds, stirring again. Continue heating for 15 seconds and stirring until chips are melted and smooth. Cool for 15-20 minutes. Beat melted chocolate at high speed for 30 seconds. Add Cool Whip and beat just until combined. Spread in square pan. Freeze several hours or overnight.
When ready to dip candy, melt milk chocolate chips and shortening in double boiler or mini crock pot, stirring until completely melted and smooth. Remove pan from freezer and cut candy into 1-inch squares. Return half to freezer while dipping other half. Dip immediately into melted chocolate and set on fresh sheet of wax paper. Remove other half from freezer, dip in chocolate, and set on wax paper. Allow to set, 30 minutes or so. Store in refrigerator.
