  2. Place chocolate in a glass bowl and place over a pan with hot, barely simmering, water.
  3. Stir until melted and if using couverture chocolate heat to 113F degrees.  Remove from heat and stir until the temperature drops to around 86F degrees.  The chocolate should become thick at this point.

Recipe Notes

  • If using chocolate chips, you must add 1 tsp of coconut oil to the chocolate in order to make it smooth.  Chocolate chips were made to hold their shape in a cookie while baking.  They will not melt into a smooth thin chocolate.  The addition of coconut oil will thin the chocolate.
  • Molding chocolate may be used as well.  Molding chocolate can be melted in 30 second increments in a microwave or use the chocolate melting method of placing a glass bowl over hot water and stir until melted and smooth.
