This is what you do
Peel and clean the fruit and divide it into slices or pieces.The fruit should be completely dry on the surface after it is washed, so make sure to get rid of the water before slicing.
Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a micro safe bowl. (Pour the oil over the chocolate).
Melt the chocolate in the microwave for about 3-4 minutes on half effect. Stir after half time.
Dip the fruits in the chocolate and let them cool off on a sheet of baking paper.
Place the dark chocolate dipped fruit in the fridge until you are ready to eat them. They should be eaten the same day as made for maximum pleasure.
Be careful, the bowl with the melted chocolate might be very hot, don’t burn yourself.
The oil makes the chocolate melt more smoothly and give it a softer consistency, but can be dropped.
