The best chocolate for melting

When melting chocolate, it’s important to start with pure chocolate sold in bars and not chocolate chips. Chocolate chips are designed not to melt when heated so they hold their shape in cookies. I prefer brands like Baker’s and Ghirardelli, which you should be able to find in the baking aisle of your grocery store. Use a sharp knife and cutting board to chop the bars into small uniform chunks before melting.
