Chocolate Melting Dos & Don'ts
What's your Take?

Follow these steps to make perfectly melted chocolate, a key ingredient of our Chocolate Lava Cakes.

How to make it

  1. Do chop or break chocolate into small, evenly sized pieces before you melt it.
     

  2. Do use clean, dry utensils and cookware. Just a drop of water can cause chocolate to "seize," or harden, during the melting process.
     

  3. Don't cover chocolate while it melts. Condensation from a lid can also cause seizing.
     

  4. Don't allow the bowl of your double boiler to sit in the lower chamber's hot water while the chocolate is melting. The chocolate could burn and become lumpy and grainy.
