Makes 1 dozen.1/2 cup thawed frozen whipped topping
2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam (see Note)
1 (3-ounce) package ladyfingers
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons vegetable shortening

1. In a small bowl, combine the whipped topping and jam; mix well.
2. Split each ladyfinger and spread the mixture equally between the halves. Replace the tops of the ladyfingers and place on a baking sheet.
3. In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and shortening over medium-low heat. Drizzle over the ladyfingers.
4. Chill for 1 hour, or until the chocolate is firm. Serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.

In a jam 'cause you have no raspberry jam? Strawberry works fine, too. I've even made these a few times with orange marmalade. What a great combo that is ? tangy orange and chocolate. Mmm mmm!
