7. Melt the chocolate: chop it and place in an oven safe bowl; fill a saucepan with hot water (so that water doesn't touch the bowl with chocolate if you place it over the water); heat the saucepan until it begins to simmer, then place the bowl with chocolate on top of the saucepan; when the chocolate begins to melt, stir it with a spatula until smooth.
