  • Always use spoons that don’t react and microwave-safe containers to keep the chocolate good.
  • Melt the chocolate slowly to keep it smooth, not thick and lumpy.

Paying close attention to how you do things and using the right tools can make a big difference in your treats.

It’s fun to try new flavors. You might like swapping peppermint for orange or almond extract.
