You can also microwave the chocolate on high power for upto 45 seconds to a minute. If some bits of the chocolate are not melted, then just keep on stirring till the chocolate bits are melted. No need to microwave again as the food keeps on cooking even after we remove it from the microwave. The chocolate would be cooking and you just keep on stirring it, till all is melted.
Allow the melted chocolate to become warm or cool completely.
