Scoop 6 balls of ice cream onto a parchment paper lined plate.
Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer until firm, about 6-7 hours.
In a medium bowl, add chocolate chips and vegetable shortening.
Make a double boiler by placing the bowl on top of a saucepan filled with 1 inch of water.
Bring to a simmer over medium low heat and stir until melted.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Now the fun part- hold each ice cream ball with a fork over the bowl of chocolate and spoon chocolate over the top to cover.
Hold over a plate and add some sprinkles then set back on the parchment lined plate.
Repeat with remaining ice cream then place back in the freezer until ready to serve.
