Chocolate tips…

Chocolate melts quicker when it is chopped up. Use the food chopper to chop your chocolate, before melting.

Melting chocolate in the microwave is wonderful in the micro cookers. It melts smoothly, it doesn’t stain, and the cooker isn’t hot to touch. Microwave 1 minute on 50% power, then in 20-second increments until melted.

When working with chocolate, keep it away from droplets of water. Be sure the container you are using is completely dry. One drop of water will change the outcome of your recipe.

Chocolate can be stored for a long time if it is kept in a tight container, away from humidity and in temps
60-70 degrees F. When exposed to direct sunlight, chocolate, especially white chocolate can go rancid changing its quality and flavor.
