Begin melting desired amount of chocolate using the double boiler method.
Fill a small pot about 1/3 the way full of water. Bring to a boil then turn down to low so water is just summering lightly. Place a bowl over pot. Make sure bowl fits well an creates a good seal.
Make sure the water is only simmering and you have a bowl that fits well, this prevents water from coming in contact with the chocolate via steam or condensation
Water coming into contact with the melting chocolate will cause the chocolate to seize and will be unusable!! 💀
Add chocolate to double boiler and stir frequently to avoid scorching
While chocolate is melting, prepare your piping bag. I put mine in a glass, it makes it much easier to put anything like the melted chocolate or frosting inside.
Stir chocolate frequently until completely melted... Delicious.
Once chocolate is melted, pour into piping bag. Chocolate will be hot so be careful to not burn yourself!
Wait a bit for the chocolate to cool, it makes piping much more manageable. Pipe whatever design you like onto parchment paper. Once your done, place in fridge and wait to harden
Once the chocolate has cooled- use to decorate your baking :)
