Answers to Common Questions Asked About
How do I melt chocolate morsels without scorching them?
The very best way to melt chocolate chips is in the microwave. Use full power in 20 second intervals, stirring after each one, cooking the chocolate until it’s melted and smooth.
What should I do if the melted chocolate hardens suddenly?
When melted chocolate hardens up, it’s is called “seizing”. Don’t panic – this is common. Place the chocolate back into the microwave, heating it in 20 second intervals (stirring in between each one) until it’s melted again.
What should I do if the melted chocolate is just too thick for drizzling?
This happens quite often with melted chocolate and there’s a very simple fix: add a drop or two of vegetable or canola oil to the chocolate, then pop it into the microwave and reheat a bit. If the chocolate isn’t the right consistency for drizzling, add a bit more oil, drop by drop.
Which tools are helpful for making Salted White Chocolate Crunch?
A flat whisk is very handy for whisking ingredients in a saucepan, such as when you mix up the corn syrup/brown sugar mixture in this recipe.
Rimmed baking sheets in 13″x17″ size (called half sheet pans) are perfect baking many different things, including this snack mix.
