In principle, there are different culinary techniques for melting chocolate.

In the microwave

This method is a bit risky, as the chocolate tends to splash into the device. However, if this is your only option:

  1. Add a teaspoon of water to the container with the chocolate.
  2. Then put in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
  3. Take the container out and stir the chocolate.
  4. If needed, put back in the device for about 10 to 20 more seconds.

Water bath

The second option is a bit slower but safer. It involves melting the chocolate in a bain-marie.

  1. For this, you will need to put the chocolate in a heat-resistant container.
  2. Then place it in a pot of water.
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low.
  4. Stir until the chocolate is well melted.

There are different ways to melt chocolate depending on how much time you have.

Prepare the quinoa

Like most edible seeds, quinoa too should be washed well before cooking. Otherwise, it can taste slightly bitter, which is what you want to avoid for your chocolate dessert, right? Before you start making the recipe, make sure to wash the quinoa well, then rinse it.

Diversify the recipe

In addition to quinoa, you can consider incorporating other superfoods. chia or flax seeds, for example, are a fantastic option.
