Baking with melted chocolate is exciting. Usually, chocolate is melted in a double boiler. However, in this recipe boiling water is used which melts the chocolate and if still, some pieces remain hot melted butter can be added to melt it.
Brownies are the best thing to bake using melted chocolate. Serve them with ice cream or milk. Kids love them. Try it with adults in the family too. Do they say no to a hot chocolate brownie icecream? I doubt it.
