Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Strawberries, washed and dried
favorite chocolate chips (about 1 bag to 30 strawberries, I use Ghiradelli milk chocolate)
about 1 teaspoon oil to 1 cup chocolate chips (the chips just need be coated)
Heat the chocolate chips and oil in a pan over low heat. Stir until just melted. The chocolate will barely be warm. you don't want to cook the chocolate or it gets lumpy. Once chocolate is melted remove from heat and dip strawberries in it. Place them on wax paper on a cookie sheet and then chill until chocolate hardens. I then melted a little white chocolate with oil the same way and drizzled it over the strawberries with chocolate already hardened on them. I added a little food coloring to make the white chocolate pink. You can also do these with dark and milk chocolate.
