Melting white chocolate

You can melt white chocolate in several ways, but the most important thing is to ensure that the chocolate doesn’t get too hot or will burn. One way to melt white chocolate is to place it in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure that the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.

You can also melt white chocolate in the microwave (this is what I do) using short bursts of power and stirring often to prevent burning. Whichever method you choose, be careful not to overheat the chocolate, or it will be ruined.
