Chocolate is an aphrodisiac. It’s romantic. It contains antioxidants. Let me cut right to the chase: the real reason I’m sharing this recipe is because it’s pathetically easy. But the end result is so impressive that your sweetie is sure to be touched. Use the best dark chocolate you can get your hands on; it really makes a difference. Recipe and photo contributed by Dynise Balcavage, from Celebrate Vegan  (Lyons Press, ©2011).
Makes: 1 cup of chocolate dip
Things to dip:
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or a silpat.
Melt the chocolate and shortening in a glass dish in the microwave at 50% power, or melt over a double boiler on low, until smooth and silky, stirring occasionally.
Dip your “things” of choice into the melted chocolate. Gently shake off excess. Place on waxed paper or silpat. Decorate, if desired. Let harden at room temperature or place in refrigerator to speed up cool down.
