***How to melt chocolate without it seizing/curdling:
Bain-marie (AKA water bath): Place the chocolate pieces into a bowl. Place into bowl into another bowl or pot with boiled water. The heat from the water will slowly melt the chocolate. Make sure you stir continuously.
Microwave: Microwave the chocolate 1 minute on high. Check. Microwave up to another 30 seconds, until your chocolate is half-melted. Remove and stir until fully melted. If necessary, microwave again in 10 second intervals.
Orange: 1 tsp orange extract and 1 tbsp grated orange zest.
Nutty: 2 tbsp almond butter and roll in 1/4 cup chopped toasted almonds or hazelnuts
OR: 1 tsp maple extract/mint extract/coffee extract/ground cinnamon
