Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
1 pint strawberries with stems on -- (preferably a long-stemmed
variety), washed and patted dry
4 ounces semisweet chocolate
1 tablespoon cooking oil
Spread strawberries on a working surface with wax-paper-covered tray
nearby. You will also need one or two bamboo skewers or other picks.
In the top of a double boiler over hot water, melt the chocolate
with the cooking oil, stirring to mix thoroughly. (The cooking oil
will add a beautiful shine to the completed sweet.) Place melted
chocolate near working surface, but keep chocolate warm.
One at a time, insert the skewer in the stem end of a strawberry and
dip into the chocolate. Lift out and shake any excess chocolate back
into the pot. Place the strawberry on the wax paper and continue
with the remaining berries. The strawberries should set for about 10
minutes before being served.
Chocolate-dipped strawberries can be refrigerated for up to 24
hours, during which time the chocolate will harden.
