Recipe Notes

*To melt the chocolate in a double boiler, heat about an inch of water in a small pot, place your chopped chocolate in a glass or metal bowl, and rest it on top. (The water should just barely be simmering, and the bottom of the bowl should not be touching the water.) Stir until smooth and liquid.
