Nutty Chocolate-Dipped Pretzels or Marshmallows

You can also use pretzel rods. These are good gifts for the littlest Valentines.

1 package (12 ounces) Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons shortening
Twisted pretzels or large marshmallows
1 cup finely chopped walnuts (optional)

In a double boiler, melt chocolate with shortening or microwave 2 to 3 minutes on medium; stir until smooth. Do not overheat. Chocolate should be lukewarm. Drop pretzels or marshmallows into chocolate mixture one at a time. Remove with a fork, raining excess chocolate. Dip pretzel or marshmallow into nuts; spread flat on a plate. Lay on waxed paper-lined flat pan. Chill until firm, at least 1 hour. When ready to serve, remove from paper.

Note: Chocolate-Dipped Pretzels will melt if room temperature is above 72 to 75 degrees.
