Tip to melt Chocolate

Great tip for holiday baking: If you are melting plain chocolate and it seizes (becomes stiff and grainy), it has been overheated. Take it off the heat and stir in 1-2 teaspoons of vegetable oil, a few drops at a time, until the cholate is smooth. Keep choclate dry when melting it, because a single drop of water or steam will cause it to seize.
