Line a tray or baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. Wash strawberries and pat until completely dry.In a microwave safe bowl, melt vanilla chips and 1 1/2 teaspoons shortening at 70% power; stir until smooth. Dip each strawberry until two thirds is coated, forming the tuxedo shirt, allowing excess to drip off. Place on prepared tray; chill for 30 minutes or until set.
Melt chocolate chips and remaining shortening. To form the tuxedo jacket, dip each side of berry into chocolate from the tip of the strawberry to the top of vanilla coating. Repeat on the other side, leaving a white V shape in the center. Set remaining chocolate aside. Chill berries for 30 minutes or until set.
