Can I make a shiny chocolate glaze by just melting chocolate and vegetable oil? Or, do I need to make one from scratch to get this effect? Can you pros tell what kind of strawberry glaze this is?

But I don't think chocolate mixed with vegetable oil will give you shiny...it just thins out the chocolate. It will probably set dull. I only think that because that's how my cake pops turn out because I don't temper the chocolate at all.

The strawberries are probably glazed in boiled apricot jam, just heat in the microwave and sieve if there are lumps of fruit, and thinned down with a little water.

A tablespoon or two of corn syrup can add some glossiness too.
