Chocolate Drizzled Butterscotch Apple Slices
1 large apple
1 cup butterscotch chips
3 teaspoons shortening (do not use butter, margarine, spread or oil), divided
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Line tray with wax paper.
Wash apple; dry thoroughly. Remove core; cut into 8 slices. Blot dry with paper towels.
Place butterscotch chips and 2 teaspoons shortening in medium microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave at HIGH (100%) 30 seconds or until chips are melted when stirred.
With fork, dip each slice completely into mixture. Tap fork and gently shake to remove excess; place slices on prepared tray.
Place chocolate chips and remaining 1 teaspoon shortening in small microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave at HIGH 15 seconds or just until chips are melted when stirred.
With tines of clean fork, drizzle over top of apple slices.
Note: If coating mixture begins to thicken and tighten, stir in additional shortening, 1/2 teaspoonful at a time.
Microwave at HIGH 15 seconds until smooth and fluid when stirred.
