11.  In the mean time melt the chocolate in a double boiler (Place a bowl of chopped chocolate over a bowl of simmering water,stir it till the chocolate melts and becomes smooth).If the chocolate gets too thick,you could add a tblspn of boiling water in the chocolate and stir it till it gets smooth.
