Lastly, add the diced butter and process with an immersion blender. The chocolate can be melted in a bain-marie or in a microwave: - In a bain-marie: remove the pan from the heat and stir the chocolate continually to ensure it melts evenly - In a microwave: set the microwave to 400W maximum to prevent the chocolate from burning Important: never add water to the chocolate.
