Line cupcake pan with liners.
In large mixing bowl combine the chocolate chips/chunks and oil, then melt in the microwave for approximately 1 minute, stirring every 20 seconds. Place a heaping tablespoon of melted chocolate into each liner, swirling it around so that it brushes up along the edges. Freeze for 20 minutes once all liners are filled.
