Foolproof method for melting chocolate |

Whenever I see recipes calling for melted chocolate, I almost cringe at the suggestion to use a double broiler or the microwave to melt the chips.  Whenever I've tried using these methods, I normally end up with burnt, overcooked chocolate.  And I hate having to play so much with the chocolate to get it melted.

My grandma has always used a different method that she learned many years ago from a woman who owned a candy shop.  It is a foolproof way to melt chocolate and I thought it is one of those simple tips that I need to share with you.

So here is how you do it......

Preheat your oven to 190 degrees.

Pour your chocolate chips, small chunks of chocolate, or chocolate caps in a glass baking dish.

When the oven has heated, turn it off and put the chocolate inside.  Leave the chips in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes.  You may want to stir them occasionally to ensure that the chocolate is melting.

When the chocolate is melted, take it out and cover your strawberries, make your candy, or whatever it is that you were creating.
