Five Tips for Working with Chocolate
1. Always chop up your chocolate finely.
2. Always use a double boiler; don’t put chocolate in the microwave.
3. Water and chocolate are enemies. Make sure when you’re chopping chocolate that you use a knife that’s totally dry and clean.
4. Use metal pans for best results.
5. Whisking chocolate creates air bubbles; it’s best to use a spatula.
