Preparation / Directions:

Note: chocolate melted this way does not need to be stored in the refrigerator. In a 4-cup glass measure, combine one 12-ounce package chocolate pieces (2 cups) and 3 tablespoons shortening. In large glass bowl pour very warm tap water to depth of 1 inch. Place container with chocolate inside large bowl. (Water should cover bottom half of container with chocolate). Stir chocolate constantly with rubber spatula until chocolate is completely melted and smooth. This takes about 20 minutes; don't rush (believe it - your chocolate will get sugar bloom white streaks if you rush). If water cools, remove container with chocolate. Discard cool water; add very warm wate. Return container with chocolate to bowl with water. NOTE: Even a drop of water in melted chocolate will cause it to seize, or become stiff. If this happens, stir in a little vegetable shortening, 1 teaspoon at a time, and continue heating and stirring until chocolate is smooth agai
