How to melt chocolate on stove

Melting chocolate on the stove requires a different technique than in the microwave.  Create a double boiler by adding water to a pot about 1/2 way full.

Then using a heat safe bowl that fits just on top of the pot without dropping you can add your chocolate chips and over low heat allow the steam to melt the chocolate, stirring often.
