First one is double boiler method and second one is microwave method.

If you do not have microwave then you will have to use first method.

It will take few minutes to melt the chocolate in microwave. In the double boiler method it will take some time.

I am using first method double boiler method.

Whenever you are going to buy the dark compound chocolate from the market you must have to check its expiry date.

because if the expiry date finished then it will take too much time to melt it.

In the double boiler method you will have to light up your gas and boil some water on it.

Then take your dark compound crushed chocolate in the utensils and put this on your boiled water utensil.

Boiled water will give a water vapour heat to your dark chocolate utensils.

And it will start to melt slowly. remember that you do not need to pour some water in the dark chocolate compound.

if you mix some water in the dark chocolate compound then it will very difficult to melt it properly.

And take a precaution to not a single drop of water should mix in in dark chocolate .your utensils and spoon should be very much dry.

If you have crushed your chocolate very finely then it will take less time to melt it.

You should to take precautions to not to overheat your chocolate because as if it does then it will not melt very easily.

You will have to give the temperature 120 degrees to dark chocolate and 110 degree to white chocolate.

It is very simple process of chocolate making. If you love to cook then definitely you love to make chocolate also.


Stir chocolate every 1 and 2 minutes.

If you melt your chocolate using microwave then it will take one and half minutes hardly to melt it properly.

It is very easiest method to melt your chocolate within less time.

We have to take a precautions to not to microwave chocolate directly for 2 minutes.

We have to microwave it for 30 seconds then take it and stir it and again microwave it for 30 seconds.

Because it will not work when the dark chocolate will overheated. it will be bitter in the test.

In the large scale manufacturing units they use confectionery thermometers to maintain the temperature to melt dark chocolate neatly.

But at the home we do not have confectionery thermometer then we will have to take precautions about temperature.

When we heat our chocolate and cooling and again heating it . it's called tempering process.

Now it's time to mold our chocolate.

Whichever mold we use it will take shape of it. We can use different types of molds to make our chocolate very beautiful.

Now fridge your chocolate in refrigerators for 3 to 5 minutes.
