Dolly’s Tips:

1) Always use a dry and clean bowl

2) For beginners, use dark couverture chocolate (55%) which is easier to handle – milk chocolate is messy- 70% chocolate hardens very fast

3) After tempering chocolate, pour in hot water and cream to make hot chocolates or add hot water + one pump of detergent to pre-clean using fat cleaning option
