Notes

To melt chocolate, bring several centimetres of water to a simmer in your saucepan. Set a heatproof bowl on top, making sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of the bowl. Break chocolate into pieces and place in bowl. Gently stir chocolate as it melts. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat (residual heat will melt the rest). If chocolate starts to thicken between wrapping ice-cream bars, re-melt.
