This week’s video is pure technique, folks! Because my chocolate lace and doily videos stirred up so many questions about how I melt and handle my chocolate, I decided to answer you all with a video!

In addition to covering how to melt chocolate, this video addresses three other key things: (1) how to tint it, (2) what causes chocolate to seize and how to recover seized chocolate, and (3) the melting/handling characteristics of real chocolate versus commonly available candy melts.
