How do you Melt Chocolate Melts?

I like to place the amount of chocolate I think I’ll need into a glass microwave-proof bowl. I microwave the chocolate on high for 1 minute. Then, I use a silicone utensil to stir the chocolate. Finally, I place it back into the microwave for 30 more seconds and stir until smooth
