Thanks! That's great. I've tried only a few times -but never been able to get it! Maybe I'll give it another go. icon_smile.gif

The article is good, but the 1st comment is the best part--it explains how to temper using the microwave!

I use the microwave for melting because with the double boiler method, the risk of getting water in the chocolate is always there.

I also use the seed method--much easier than tabling.

Thanks!

I also use the seed method but I melt the chocolate with a heat gun (the one you buy at home depot for floors) it's easier for me to control the temp this way.
