I thought I was scarred for life years ago, before the internet and youtube, when I tried to melt chocolate for a recipe by double boiling and it went horribly wrong (don’t ask!). And for a long time I didn’t dare to make anything that requires me to melt chocolate.
And now, with so many videos on baking and cooking, I see how easy it is cook with chocolate. And this chocolate-covered strawberries recipe I got from Laura Vitale is foolproof! Hurray! But I’m still apprehensive about the double boiler. I use the microwave oven. So for now, chocolate is conquered!
