How to Melt Chocolate

There are two methods available to you: stove-top and microwave.

  • Stove-top: Start by filling the bottom of a double boiler with water and simmer over medium heat. From there, place semi-sweet chocolate into the top section of the double boiler and gently simmer. Be sure to maintain the heat to keep the water at a gentle simmer because boiling can cause the chocolate to burn.
  • Microwave: Place your chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl. Set the timer for 30 seconds and then stir.  Repeat the process until the chocolate is melted and smooth. It should take about 2-3 minutes in total.
