Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave on medium for 2 minutes, or until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Add shortening to thin the chocolate; stir gently. Dip each plastic spoon into chocolate mixture to cover the bowl of the spoon; place on parchment paper to set. Arrange candies on spoons as desired while chocolate is still soft; let cool completely.
