How to Melt Chocolate

They are many ways to melt chocolate.  In here I'll describe two only: Double Broiler & Microwave.

What ever method that you choose remember the following:
1. Chocolate will burn if heated at a high temperature.
2. Chocolate will tighten or lump when exposed to  any moisture, especially steam
3. Chocolate absorbs odors easily.

The chocolate you choose should me broken into small (about 2" is good enough)  pieces,
it will melt faster.

Double Boiler  -  Please do not let water boil - let it simmer only !!!
Place water in lower pan.
Place chocolate, uncovered,  in the top part of a double boiler, or any pan that can be set over water  level of
lower pan.
Put over burner, set  to Low heat.  Stir chocolate frequently and don't let water come to a boil !
When chocolate is completely melted take of heat, make shore no moisture comes in contact with chocolates.   Because chocolate is so sensitive to water I prefer the Microwave method.

Microwave - place chocolate, uncovered in a glass, corning type micro save bowl - not plastic !
For 1 lb. of chocolate start melting a Medium Temperature, for 1 minute.  mix chocolate.
Each kind of chocolate melt differently, depends on the amount of milk, solids, sugar in it, etc.
Keep melting at 1/2 minute increments.  Once you know the strength of your microwave you will be able to melt it as needed.

Don't forget to mix after each time.  A lot of times the chocolate keeps its shapes but it's already melted, strange, right?

If you cooked something with a strong odor before, clean you microwave.   One method is, Place a cup with dishwashing liquid & water on High for 5 minutes - instant self cleaning oven,  wipe clean and make shore microwave is completely dry.

To keep chocolate melted - place on a hot-tray (low setting) , or heating pad or under a lamp.
