  2. Melt white morsels and vegetable shortening in top of double boiler or in a microwave-safe bowl in microwave.

  3. Working with one doughnut hole at a time, use a fork to dip into melted morsels mixture to coat. Lift coated doughnut holes from coating, shaking excess melted morsels mixture back into bowl. Place coated doughnut holes, one cut-side down, on prepared cookie sheet.
