 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pt            Strawberries with stems on
                         (preferably a
                         Long-stemmed variety),
                         washed and
                         Patted dry
    4      oz            Semisweet chocolate
    1      tb            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.
