How To Make Marzipan Candy & Cake Decorations : Melting Chocolate For Marzipan Recipes
Hi I’m Rachel Dayan for Expert Village. Now
I’m going to show you how to melt chocolate. We are going to use a double boiler which
means pan we have water inside and inside we have a smaller a dry smaller pot, I’m going
to put the fire on and put the chocolate inside. The reason we do a double boiler boiling is
because chocolate can burn if you put in straight on a fire. As soon as the water starts getting
hot the chocolate starts melting. A different way of melting chocolate is put in the microwave
but I prefer this way because as long as the water is hot the chocolate is going to stay
melted. Then in the microwave as soon as you put it out and there is nothing hot on it’s
bottom it is going to get harder. You see that we have a nice creamy mixture as a chocolate.
I also put a little bit of white chocolate chips inside it is going to make a nice decoration
but I want to mention the white chocolate chip is getting the mixed it is going to be
thicker so if you want it to be thinner you add a little bit of oil and mix it while it
is on the fire. You can see that it is very thick so I’m going to add a little oil to
it. The chocolate you don’t add water cause that is going to separate the chocolate, just
add a little oil to it and mix it up. I can see that it is smoother, thinner.
