Instructions Checklist
  • 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).

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

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

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