The Easiest Method to Melt Chocolate

Once you've tried this method, you'll probably abandon all other methods such as microwaving and melting in a double boiler. Even if the chocolate is old or dried out a bit, this method restores it beautifully.

Place chocolate squares in a glass bowl. Pour boiling water over the chocolate. Use a flat dinner knife to test the squares and when they're completely soft, pour off the water.

It's as simple as that!
