Melting Chocolate or Butter

Melting chocolates and butter can prove to be harder than we actually think.

Putting them directly in a pan over the hob will resulting in charring or burning (as a fuel). Even if we are careful it is sure to destroy the chemical composition, and in turn, the flavour of these ingredients. The last thing we really want. Really! So, what's the alternative? To set up a melting station, that's what. It's not that hard to set it up as to maintain it during the melting, though. But I'll take you through it.

Melting Station

Melting chocolate, butter

  1. Set up you melting station: Boil water and put a glass/plastic bowl over it in such a way that it does not touch the water beneath.
  2. Put the chocolate/butter (or both of them together, in some cases) in the bowl above and stir until melted.
  3. If the water below keeps getting cooler before melting the entire mass of chocolate or butter (this can happen particularly for a large quantity), keep replacing with more boiling water.
  4. This can be a good time to incorporate sugar, if required. Make sure the sugar is granulated.
