   bowl, place powdered sugar. Gradually add chip mixture,
   beating until well blended. Makes about 2 cups frosting.

   1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon
   shortening; cook on high for 1 minute. Stir until chips are
   melted and mixture is smooth. Do not use butter or
   margarine.  Makes about 20 servings.
