    I was always under the impression that to get shiny chocolate you need to temper it, what I do is melt half the amount of chocolate, take off the heat and add the rest and let the heat of the melted chocolate melt the rest and that is how I temper chocolate and get it shiny.

    I thought it was the addition of some butter to the melted chocolate, that made it shiny when cooled.
    (don't know for sure, it just sticks in my mind for some reason).

    I just add some Crisco or any other solid shortening. About a spoon full and that will make it shiny.

    Adding a little Parfin wax as you melt the chocolate will make it shiny.

    Chocolate chips may not be the best choice if you want 'shiney'. You'd do better with actual coating chocolate--Merckens is a good brand. A little more expensive than the Wilton available at most craft stores, but well worth the extra cost, because it's a much better chocolate.
