I was trying to make an orange/chocolate icing.  I melted my chocolate, then added orange zest.  The orange zest made the chocolate totally seize!  I realize I should have added them separately to the icing, but now it's too late.  I don't have extra ingredients or time to run to the store.  Is there any way to salvage this??

Never mind.  If anyone else encounters this problem, you can add water (yep, water) until the chocolate smooths out.  I added about 3 tbsp to 7 oz of chocolate.  That would never work for dipping chocolate or anything like that, but for my purposes it's perfect!

ALoL I was just about to tell you to add some water! A little bit of water will sieze chocolate, but beyond a certain point, it will liquify again.

Thanks, Sarah!  I should have just sent you a fb message. :)
