  3. Place on a rack in a large baking pan. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes or until crisp. Cool completely.
  4. Combine chocolate chips and shortening; melt in a microwave and stir until smooth, be sure not to overheat your chocolate. Or if you prefer you can melt in a double boiler.
  5. With a pastry brush, coat bacon on both sides with melted chocolate. Place on waxed paper – lined baking sheet.
  6. Top each strip with toppings as desired, this must be done before chocolate hardens. Refrigerate until firm.
