Kitchen Basics 101: How to Melt Chocolate
Over the years I have melted chocolate for many different recipes. I have also used many different methods of melting chocolate. Today for Kitchen Basics 101, I am going to share with you my favorite
method for melting chocolate using Almond Bark.
Almond Bark is wonderful. You can purchase it at any local Walmart for under $5.00 a block.
It melts beautifully. And I always use my microwave.
I always put down a piece of wax paper to lay my spoons on. This helps with cleanup.
Begin by setting your microwave setting to low and start out in 30 second intervals.
In just a few minutes you have perfectly melted chocolate.
Now, begin dipping. ALWAYS place your dipped items on a piece of wax paper to dry.
And in no time at all, you’ll have delicious chocolate covered strawberries.
Chocolate covered pretzels.
Or even chocolate covered cookies.
Here is the recipe for the sugar cookies above.
Why not make them this week using a heart shaped
cookie cutter for Valentine’s Day?!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
