Easy Chocolate Chopping

By Cook's Illustrated Published March 2010

Try this easy method for chopping chocolate.

Chocolate that’s been chopped into fine shards melts more evenly and quickly (think crushed ice versus ice cubes). Here’s an easy way to chop it.

Place the tip of a serrated knife on the cutting board and the blade on a corner of the chocolate, then bear down with both hands. The scalloped edge of the knife blade will cause the chocolate to break into fine shards rather than chunks. For the finest pieces, make sure your cuts are as close together as you can make them.
