Recipe: Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
 by Rondi Hillstrom Davis and Janell Sewall Oakes

18 large strawberries with the leaves left on
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1. Wash the strawberries and pat dry.

2. Cover a cookie sheet with waxed paper and set aside. 

3. Place the chocolate in the top of a double boiler. Fill the bottom pan with 1-inch of water. Simmer. Melt the chocolate, stirring only once or twice until smooth. 

4. Stir in the oil. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. 

5. Holding the strawberry by the leaves, dip it into the warm chocolate and swirl.

6. Let the excess chocolate drip off. Place the strawberry upside down with the point in the air. This will prevent the chocolate from puddling on the wax paper. 

7. Lay the strawberry on the prepared pan and straighten the leaves. Allow to cool. 
Continue with the remaining strawberries. 

8. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for no more than 24 hours. Better if made and eaten the same day. The chocolate will appear matte when refrigerated and glossy when served at room temperature.
