Melting - In order to avoid scorching the chocolate, microwave chocolate in 30-second intervals using microwave safe bowls. Stir in-between intervals to distribute the heat. Keep chocolate at a constant temperature to produce a smooth professional look. You can purchase a griddle, or use your stove top and frying pan. Lay two towels on the pan or griddle before placing the chocolate filled plastic bowl.
