Place baking chocolate and shortening in medium microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or just until mixture is melted

Break into pieces.
Store, well covered, in refrigerator.

*special note: you can use coconut butter in place of the vegetable shortening, if you have soy/corn issues
