How to Melt Chocolate in a Double Boiler

Author Lauren


  • metal cooking pot
  • ceramic, metal, or glass bowl


  • Add water to the pot. You only want to add a few inches of water, you never want the water to touch the bottom of the bowl.
  • Heat the water over medium heat. Once the water comes to a boil place your bowl with chocolate on top.
  • Melt the chocolate. Use a rubber spatula to keep scraping down the boil so the chocolate on the side of the bowl will not burn.
  • Once the chocolate is melted remove the bowl from the heat.
