Step 3. Melt the chocolate. To be professional, stir the candies consistently in a double over hot water until smooth and creamy. For a more convenient option, microwave the chocolate in short intervals, stirring every 15-20 seconds until completely melted. Be sure not to let it “cook” or else it will become solidified. If that occurs, mix in some milk until it reaches a liquid consistency once more.
