Yesterday, I made strawberries covered with chocolate.
Both my strawberries and milk chocolate were at room temperature. I heated the chocolate in the microwave together with a drop of peanut oil, stirred and dipped the berries in it. I let it all cool down in my cellar (+-15° C /+-60° F) on a piece of parchment paper.
While the taste was great, I didn't like that they looked a bit 'dull'. I would prefer it if they shone.
I added the oil, because I read it somewhere as a tip to get shiny strawberry-chocolates. I don't think it was as much as they adviced me to do though.
Can I do anything to make the chocolate shiny?
