Tips …

To melt chocolate in double-boiler, place chocolate chips in heatproof bowl set over saucepan of barely simmering water for 3 to 5 minutes or until chocolate can be stirred.

To melt chocolate in microwave, place in microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup. Microwave on medium, stirring every 30 seconds, for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth and melted.

Alternatively, use finely chopped chocolate instead of chocolate chips.
