Finely chop the chocolate with a kitchen knife. If you put a cooking sheet on the cutting board and carve it, you can lift the sheet and put the chocolate in the pan at once, and the cutting board will be almost clean.

2. Put a pot of water on the fire and prepare hot water at 50°C.

Put an appropriate amount of water in a small pan and set it on fire. When bubbles start to emerge from the bottom of the pot, it is 60°C. When it reaches 60°C, remove it from the heat and let it cool, put your finger in it and let it cool down to a little hotter than the bath, then use it in a hot water bath.

It is also possible to prepare hot water of about 50°C by mixing hot water and water in equal amounts in a pot or bowl.
