Use a double boiler on your stove, or heat chocolate in a microwave oven.

I have only had good luck with melting chocolate in the double boiler. The microwave melting tastes different to me. The only other way I have of melting chocolate is letting my nine-year old daughter put a chocolate bar next to the fan of my laptop. Ewww.

If you don't have a double boiler you can set the chocolate in a slightly smaller or handled smaller pan and set that in a large pot of boiling water. Just be sure there's enough water boiling in the large pan that the bottom of the small pan is sitting in the water, but not so much water that would spill over when placing pan into pan. ;-)

When melting chocolate make sure when double boiling that your chocolate does not come in contact with water, this will cause your chocolate to seize up and become very hard to work with, so make sure those bowls are dry. In some cases the chocolate can be ruined. - Julie

When I used to melt chocolate for brownies, I just placed the wrapped up squares in the oven as it was pre-heating. I then would scrape the chocolate out into the bowl. I hate using double-boilers. (01/05/2001)

I found that since I do not have a double-boiler, I have used a stainless steel bowl over a pot of boiling water. When melting chocolate, it's highly recommended that you use a wooden spoon and not a metal spoon or whip. (08/13/2005)

You can also melt the wafers in the microwave using a lower power setting. (02/18/2006)
