How do you burn chocolate? I mean, I know how to, just burn it right? But, ok, here's the whole story:
Last time I made these mexican chocolate cookies, I was told by the recipe to melt the chocolate in the microwave for about a minute. So I did. And it worked. Today, I put the same amount of chocolate in the same little glass bowl and it burned. Smoke everywhere. A little chunk looked like a lava rock. I had to fan the smoke alarm with a pillow so it wouldn't go off and then drown the smoldering remains with water. Then, I had to go to Kroger to get more chocolate, because everything else is already mixed up. Curses.
Update: Second chocolate melting worked. They're in the oven! I added more cinnamon and pepper to this batch, we'll see what happens.
Stay tuned tonight for a school update!
