the double boiler from the heat and stir until the

each dipping, stir the chocolate vigorously with your
fingers. If the centers become too soft, chill for about 30 minutes.

storing in refrigeration. If the centers start to come
through the bottoms of the chocolates, as often
happens with soft mixtures, dip the bottoms again in
melted and cooled chocolate.
