For those, like me, who just don't have a double boiler, it's easy to use what you already own to make one!
All you need to do, is use two pots, making sure that one pot can sit on top of the other pot without falling (OUCH).
1. Fill the bottom pot with water, and set on the stove, to a medium temperature.
2. Place chocolate candies inside second pot, and place pot on top of the water pot. (Still with me?)
3. Stir the chocolate with wooden spoon, until it has melted and is shiny.
4. Remove top chocolate pot, and use
Tips: Do not remove the water pot from the stove. If you are working on a big project, the chocolate candies can start to thicken up, and all you need to do is place the chocolate pot back on top for a minute to get it back to the consistency you need.
