Yesterday, I shared a link to chocolate expert Alice Medrich’s essential chocolate tips. The Kitchn also ran a post in which she shared the best way to melt chocolate for a recipe.
Instead of futzing with a double boiler, you can just put a heatproof bowl in a pan of simmering water. This allows you to see what’s going on while the chocolate is melting.
Alternatively, you could always invest in some chocolate factory equipment!
