To melt the chocolate in a bain-marie, place your pieces of chocolate in a glass bowl or other heat-resistant bowl or use a small saucepan.

After a few minutes, the chocolate will be completely melted and you can remove it from the heat and do not burn yourself with the glass bowl or the pots, which will be very hot.
