Good Fortune

Hubby's birthday is right around the corner, and I am attempting to pull together an Asian theme for the menu for his party. Now is the time for me to be searching my online sources as Chinese New Year recipes are being promoted for celebrations around the world. Parades, traditional feasts, and other activities are planned to entice happiness, prosperity, and good fortune.

One common practice is to eat something sweet in order to bring forth a "sweet" new year. I can do that with Chocolate Dipped Fortune Cookies. They are a sweet treat that hopefully will bring us good fortune not only for the party, but for everything that is On My Plate for the new year.

Chocolate Dipped Fortune Cookies
1 dozen fortune cookies
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate ships (or white chocolate, if desired)
1 tablespoon shortening

In a small bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between.
Add shortening; stir until blended.
Dip the purchased fortune cookies half-way in the chocolate and place on waxed paper to cool.
