Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- 40 fresh strawberries with leaves (dry, not wet), about 2 pounds
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 9 ounces)
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
1. Add chocolate chips and canola oil to a 4-cup glass measure and heat on HIGH in microwave for about 1 minute. Stir, and microwave another 30 seconds or so, if needed, until mixture is smooth.
2. Holding strawberries by the green tops, dip them halfway into the chocolate mixture. Place them on a plate or pan lined with wax or parchment paper. Put in the refrigerator or a cool part of your kitchen to help chocolate cool. Serve.
