Chocolate Covered Garlic

We used this 'book' to offer the chocolate covered garlic at the end of our Garlic Dinner. Each time you open the cover, there is a unique comment in a witchy voice, with about 6 different phrases. We had fun opening and closing this book, offering Chocolate Covered Garlic to all those that dare. Thanks Marj, our Jim Thorpe sister, for sharing this book with us!
Chocolate Covered Garlic
Peel and separate 20 cloves of garlic. Place garlic cloves in a small pan of water and boil until tender, about 6 minutes. Drain garlic, pat dry, and set aside. Melt 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate in microwave. Add 1 tsp. shortening to melted chocolate. Stir well. Dip each garlic clove in melted chocolate, place on wax paper. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Refrigerate until firm. Place in candy cups, and enjoy!
Note: For true Garlic die-hard fans and a real 'garlic bite', do not boil the garlic cloves.
