How to Make It

Step 1

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or put the chocolate pieces in a metal bowl and place it over a saucepan of simmering water. This prevents the chocolate from burning (which can easily happen over a direct flame).

Step 2

Adding vegetable shortening (such as Crisco) helps keep the chocolate liquidy and gives it extra sheen but is not necessary.

Step 3

The chocolate will melt slowly, so leave it alone (no need to stir) and watch carefully.

Step 4

Once the chocolate is completely melted, you can use it as a dip or drizzle it over the cookies.
 This recipe makes 1 cup.
