    Chocolate fingers?

    So many great recipes are just waiting for me to try. But a number of them call for dipping in chocolate. How do you do that without coating your fingers with the chocolate?

    I use a dipping fork. You can usually find them where they sell cake and candy supplies.

    Here's my fancy solution: break the middle tines out of a plastic fork. Toss your item to be dipped into the chocolate bath, lift with the altered fork and all the mess drips in the middle.

    I just use a meat fork, the one with the two large tines.

    Why didn't I know this before? I always try to use a toothpick, whatever slides into the chocolate and my frustration begins.

    That sounds like it would work!
    Now, if I only could melt chocolate liquid enough to dip!
    What am I doing wrong?

    I think it depends on what you're trying to melt. If it's almond bark, and you're trying in the microwave...I find it burns more than melts. I almost always melt my chocolate (chips, bark, or candy melts) in a glass bowl over boiling water. This works since I don't have a double boiler--looked all over creation for one and had to improvise that, too. If you do it in the double boiler, it does take a while to get the solids melted, but it stays liquid until you take it off the heat and you can dip to your hearts content.
