Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Ingredients:

  • 8 strawberries
  • 1/2 cup good quality bittersweet chocolate chips (or milk chocolate, if preferred)
  • 1/8 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon canola oil

Directions:

  1. Wash strawberries (leave stems on), and pat dry.
  2. Microwave dark chocolate in a bowl 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval. Stop cooking when most of the chocolate is melted but lumps still remain (60-90 seconds), stir until smooth.
  3. Hold each strawberry by the stem (can also use a fork or sturdy toothpick), dip in melted chocolate until evenly coated. Place on wax paper.
  4. Combine white chocolate and oil in a bowl, microwave 30-45 seconds, stir until smooth. Dip a fork into the melted white chocolate and drizzle over prepared strawberries. Chocolate will harden at room temperature, but strawberries can be made ahead and chilled.
