METHOD 1 MELT WITH A DOUBLE BOILER
- Do not add water. The chocolate will become unusable.  If you introduce a little water into the chocolate while melting, a little vegetable oil will make the chocolate more useful, but it can still be granulated.
- Add the chocolate to the top of a double boiler. If you do not have a double boiler, you can easily place a lightweight, non-plastic bowl over a slightly steaming pot of water. The steam will slowly heat the chocolate above.
- Be sure not to let the bottom of the bowl (holding the chocolate) come into contact with the steaming water or with boiling water. Contact with water can cause the bowl to grow very hot, burning the chocolate instead of melting. The chocolate will melt faster if it is broken into smaller pieces.
- Stir constantly, stir the chocolate until it begins to melt. Because chocolate is very easily burned, be careful not to leave the room or stop stirring for a long time.
- Continue stirring until the chocolate is completely melted. Adjust the heat on the stove if you believe that the chocolate is melting very quickly. The entire process should take 5 to 10 minutes.
- Use the chocolate to dive, dress or incorporate into another recipe.
