In a small heavy bottom saucepan combine chocolate chips and shortening,over medium heat. Stir to blend until creamy.
Remove from heat and dip crackers in one at a time using small appetizer tongs or a long handled soda spoon. May also drop 3 or more at a time remove from chocolate and place on a piece of easy release foil, or wax paper or into sprayed mini muffin tins. Chill until set. I usually make them into little mounds of 3 or 5 to a piece. Very good and they don't last long. Because they get eaten up!
