Expert Tips

How I Melt Chocolate Melts

I typically pour the chocolate melts into a glass microwave-proof bowl. Then, I microwave them on high for one minute. I use a silicone spatula or spoon to stir the chocolate. If the chocolate still has lumps, then I place it back into the microwave for thirty more seconds and then stir until smooth.

Chocolate Seizing

This is what my mom used to call overheated chocolate or chocolate that was unworkable. She’d say, the chocolate seized. Which basically meant that it was thick and impossible to use.

Causes of chocolate seizing are typically overheating the chocolate or adding liquid to the chocolate.

There is a fine balance of heating and overheating chocolate. Once you overheat it, it turns thick and worthless.

There are tricks and tips to smooth the chocolate back out, but I don’t think it really ever fully recovers. You’ll basically want to add a form of lard in the way of vegetable shortening or coconut oil. Only use a tiny little speck. Add it to the chocolate and stir in.

Variations

Different Teacup Handles: Instead of yogurt pretzels use gummy rings cut in half, chocolate covered pretzel twists, or plain mini pretzel twists
