💭How to melt chocolate
Melting chocolate can be a tricky business, especially if you're melting baking chips. Baking chips are designed to hold their shape at high temperatures, so they can be difficult to melt evenly.
The key to melting chocolate is to use a double boiler. A double boiler is a pot that sits on top of another pot of simmering water. This allows the chocolate to melt gently and evenly, without coming into direct contact with the heat source.
You can also use a microwave to melt chocolate, but you'll need to be careful not to overheat it. Start by heating the chocolate in short bursts, stirring frequently, until it is melted. Chocolate can also be melted in a saucepan over low heat, but again, you'll need to stir frequently to prevent scorching.
💭How to make melted chocolate thinner
One common problem when making melted chocolate is that it can become too thick and difficult to work with. If this happens, there are a few simple ways to thin it out.
- One way is to add a little bit of oil to the chocolate. This will help to make the chocolate more fluid and easier to work with.
- Another way to thin melted chocolate is to add a bit of milk or cream. This will also help to make the chocolate more fluid and easier to work with.
- Finally, if the chocolate is still too thick, you can try heating it up again. This will help to further thin out the chocolate and make it easier to work with.

💭Top Recipe Tip
- Allow the Nutter Butter Snowman Cookies to dry completely before adding the red scarf and hat details. The red melted chocolate could "bleed" into the white melted chocolate and ruin everything.
Parchment Baking Sheets: Ensure your cookies are precisely spaced and bake evenly without sticking or breaking. Pre-cut to 12” x 16” sheets, they make your prep, baking and clean-up a breeze.
