- Melt the Chocolate
First, melt the chocolate. In a microwave safe dish, microwave chopped chocolate for 30 second intervals, with occasional stirring, until the chocolate is all melted. Alternatively, use a double boiler to melt the chocolate. Place the chocolate in a bowl set over a pot with a bit of water which is lightly simmering. Stir occasionally until the chocolate is all melted.

To get a very even and precise chocolate drizzle, pour the melted chocolate into a Ziploc bag and cut off a bit of the corner, then drizzle with a zig-zag motion.
The next is a less controlled drizzle, requiring just a fork. Keep the bowl of chocolate in your hand, and dip the fork into the chocolate and drizzle away.
