Many recipes call for chocolate and sugar to be melted together. These are the steps you will need to take to melt chocolate with sugar in a double boiler on top of the stove. Be sure that you constantly whisk the mixture the entire time that it is over the heat to prevent burning or seizing. You should have a smooth combination of chocolate and sugar at the end. For the exact amounts of sugar and chocolate, follow your recipe closely since the proportions are different for many dishes, but the procedure is the same.
Place the large pot on the stove and bring the water in the bottom of it to a boil over high heat.
Turn the heat down to medium.
Place the bowl on top of the pot of boiling water.
Add the sugar and chopped chocolate to the bowl.
Stir the chocolate and sugar constantly while it melts over medium heat. The length of time this can take will vary depending upon the amounts required in your recipe.
Remove the bowl from the heat after all of the chocolate and sugar have melted. Continue with your recipe, using the melted chocolate and sugar where directed.
