How To Melt Chocolate Chips
3 easy methods for melting chocolate chips.
Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.
Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir.
Microwave again for 15 seconds. Stir again. Keep heating in 10 second intervals and stirring until melted.
Prepare double boiler by adding a couple of inches of water to a medium pot and place on stove top. Heat the water until a gentle simmer. Place a heatproof bowl on top of the pot. Make sure the bowl does not touch the water.
Add 3/4 of the chocolate chips to the bowl. Stir with a spatula until they start to melt. Add the rest of the chocolate chips and keep stirring to melt.
Once melted, carefully remove the top bowl and use the chocolate.
Put chocolate chips in a jar or bowl. I like using Mason jars. Place the jars in the slow cooker.
Carefully add hot water to the slow cooker. You will want to fill it so the water comes up about 2-3 inches. Make sure not to get any water inside the jar with the chocolate.
Turn the crock-pot on high. Do not cover. Let the chocolate heat 20-30 minutes and stir. The time will depend on how many chips you are melting.
Once melted, lower the temperature to "warm" setting. The melted chocolate should stay good for about 2 hours.
