Melting Chocolate in a Double Boiler
Be sure to use a good quality chocolate. We like to use chocolate in block form but , you can also use chocolate chips or chocolate melting wafers. If you are using block chocolate you will need to chop it into small pieces for so it will melt evenly. Melt your chocolate over low heat and stir slowly with a spatula occasionally. Be careful not to splash any water into the chocolate which will ruin the consistency entirely.
Melting Chocolate Using a Microwave
Place the chopped chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium (50% power) for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave 30 seconds more or until chocolate is softened. Stir until smooth and let cool.
