I'm about to start melting chocolate to make DH valentine's choccies.
But is it best to melt them in a glass bowl or a metal bowl (over pot of simmering water)?
And do you use a rubber spatula or metal spoon?

I prefer using a glass bowl and a thin spatula. Metal bowls get too hot for be!

Either is ok just make sure they are heat proof! I use a spatula as you can scrape it out of the bowl easier!

I melted my chocolate, did the mould, set it in the fridge, it popped out beautifully.
I now have it on a plate with paper towel, but the chocolate (lid) has gone soft!
I'm making a chocolate heart shaped box (to put small chocs inside).
Have I done it wrong? How can I get it to stay hard?
I want to wrap it in celophane and make it all pretty for DH for Valentine's Day
