Dandy dessert dip

If you're getting together with friends to watch football playoffs, Hershey's has an idea for an easy dessert fondue. Combine 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips or peanut butter chips with 1/4 cup of milk and one 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk and microwave 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on high until mixture is melted and smooth when stirred. Pour into fondue pot or warmer and serve with poundcake pieces, marshmallows, strawberries, pretzels, corn chips or crackers.

For faster cleanup

To cut down on cleanup time, Woman's Day magazine suggests that when measuring shortening, first line the cup with plastic wrap.
