|MELTING CHOCOLATE IN A MICROWAVE OVEN|
It's neat, easy and quicker than quick. Note that in the microwave oven, chocolate squares and chips will keep their shape even when they are softened. Stir to determine whether chocolate is fluid and melted. For best results, follow these procedures.
UNSWEETENED BAKING CHOCOLATE AND SEMI-SWEET BAKING CHOCOLATE: Unwrap, break blocks in half and place desired amount in micro-proof measuring cup or bowl. Microwave at high (100%) for half the minimum time listed below; stir. Continue to microwave until chocolate is softened; stir. Allow to stand several minutes to finish melting; stir again. (If unmelted chocolate still remains, return to microwave for an additional 30 seconds; stir until fluid.)
