Here Are a Few Tips When Cooking With Chocolate:
- I find that the easiest way to melt chocolate is in a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler you can put water in a saucepan and begin to boil, then place a glass bowl on top of the pan. Place the chocolate inside and continuously stir until melted. It can burn quickly if you aren’t careful.
- Never add a cold liquid like milk or butter to melted chocolate. If you add cold to the hot chocolate, it will cause it to seize, which results in a clumpy mess that is grainy and not too appetizing. Once in a while, you can save seized chocolate, but it doesn’t always work.
- Chocolate is also great for drizzling onto desserts. Just melt in the microwave at 10-second intervals and stir.
