I know that you can melt chocolate the fancy way, but my favoirte way is to use Dove chocolates. I don’t know how I found out that they melt so easily, but at some point in time I discovered that they do and it’s changed the way I melt chocolate. Using a plastic or microwave safe container and Dove chocolate, you can make the BEST melted chocolate ever! Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, whatever you prefer.
