- Hershey's Chocolate bar, a Toblerone, a bag of chocolate chips or any chocolate that you enjoy. Always make more than you think you will need. You may find yourself eating it with a spoon in the end.
- Yummies for dipping. Stawberries, bannanas or pound cake to name a few.
- 2 or 3 Cups simmering hot water
Make a simple double boiler using this technique. Heat the water up in the microwave or coffee maker. I usually put it on three minutes in the microwave.
Find two bowls in your kitchen where one fits inside the other with room for water in the bottom bowl.
Break up the chocolate (if needed) into smaller pieces and place in the top bowl.
When the water is ready, pour it into the bottom bowl.
Cut the Yummies for dipping up while you wait for the chocolate to begin to melt.
Stir the chocolate until it is all melted.
Dip yummies and eat.
**A note, the instructions are based on feeding this to 1-3 people. It can easly be made for more but you may need to use the stove to warm up more water. You wouldn't need an actual double boiler though. Use a heat-proof bowl (a metal mixing bowl works well) over a simmering sauce pan about half full of water. In this case, you will need to pay more attention to the melting chocolate than you do in the method above.**
