Chocolate-Covered Strawberries and Bananas

Here is a great simple way to make an amazing dessert that everyone will love and love to help make.  My daughter, Paige, loves to help in the kitchen, especially when we are making anything at all that has to do with chocolate.  And chocolate covered strawberries may be her most favorite thing above all to help with.  I have to laugh to myself every time when we finish, because in her haste to hide it from me, she leaves a trail of taste testing for me to see.  Usually smeared across her little tiny face :)

1 carton of fresh strawberries (with the leaf tops sliced off)
3 medium bananas (peeled and chopped)
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 tsp vegetable oil
a fist full of old saved popsicle sticks (you don't have to use them, it just makes them more
kid friendly' to use them)
and a dash of fun

-Combine chocolate chips and the oil in a small microwavable bowl. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes or just until chocolate stirs smoothly. Stick a popsicle stick into each piece of fruit and then dip each one into the melted chocolate and place them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Place sheets in freezer for 10 minutes. Store refrigerated or back in th freezer in a covered container. Makes a lot. Enjoy!
