Dipped Pretzel Rods

1 cup  Semi-Sweet Chocolate, Milk Chocolate,
Premier White Morsels, or white or chocolate almond bark
1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
16 pretzel rods
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels and/or sprinkles (optional)
Additional Chocolate for drizzling (optional)
1. Line baking sheet with wax paper.
2. Microwave 1 cup morsels and vegetable shortening in small, dry, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.
3. Dip pretzel rods about 3 inches into melted morsels, tilting bowl to easily dip. Use side of bowl to remove excess. Sprinkle with morsels or sprinkles. Place on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until set. Store in airtight container at room temperature. Best when eaten within a few days.
