Super Easy Recipe
If you are like me, sometimes you just need to make things that are easy. I love to prepare food from scratch which is how I learned to cook. Over the past few years, however, I have less and less time to cook from scratch. I am going to try to focus my life and my blog around recipes that are homemade but are easy to prepare and super tasty.
Can you microwave White Chocolate?
Yes, place the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the white chocolate 15 to 20 seconds and then stir. Keep melting and stirring until the white chocolate is smooth. Do not melt chocolate fast. It will seize.
Use White Chocolate instead of candy melts. You may want to use candy melts but they do not taste near as good as pure white chocolate.
Why does my white chocolate not melt?
Melted white chocolate will seize when it comes in contact with small amounts of liquid. If you add any flavorings to your chocolate, it should be added before melting the chocolate.
Can you fix chocolate that has seized?
This may sound crazy, but the way to fix chocolate that has seized is to add more liquid to it. Adding more liquid will dissolve the sugar and cocoa clumps.
