Top Tips

How to Melt Chocolate

  • Set up a bain marie. To do this put a small amount of water in a saucepan. Sit a bowl on top. Put the chocolate in the bowl – not in the water. It is very important to only have saucepan about 1/4 full. The water should never touch the chocolate of it go stiff and lumpy.

 

  • Otherwise  – melt in the microwave. Be careful though. Do at 30 second intervals – melt for 30 seconds, stop the microwave, stir and repeat until just melted. Do not put it back in of the final step – the residual ( left over heat ) will continue to melt the last bit and prevent it burning.

Spreading Peanut Butter

  • Always use a flat butter knife.
  • Make sure the peanut butter is room temperature.
  • Never try to spread the peanut butter while holding the cracker  –  it will crack!
  • Be patient.
