    Do I just put them in the small batter bowl and put it in the microwave? Do I need to put oil in there? How long?

    No oil....and be sure to nuke for 30 sec increments....stir after each 30 sec. You can use the batter bowl or the micro cooker....

    Be sure to stir, as Laurie said. Chocolate does not change shape when it is melting...you have to stir it every 15-30 sec.

    Also, make sure everthing that touches the chocolate (bowl in which it's cooking and the utensil you're using to stir it) is DRY. Even a drop of water will cause it to freeze up.

    I agree with the stirring in intervals too!

    I usually melt mine in our prep bowls or small batter bowl (depending on how many I need to melt). I have also used our small microcooker too.

    If you want a velvety chocolate, add a very small amount of Crisco.

    Ditto, Ditto, Ditto on the stirring thing.
    I melted some in the small micro cooker one time and forgot to stir them, burned a hole in the micro cooker!!
