How to Melt Peanut Butter in the Microwave
- Measure out 1 cup of smooth peanut butter and place it in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover the bowl with a paper towel.
- Microwave for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl from the microwave, and stir well.
- Return the bowl to the microwave and continue to cook in 30-second intervals until it melts.
How to Melt Chocolate in Microwave
- Break or chop your chocolate into small pieces if you are using a chocolate bar. You can also use melting chocolate from the baking section of the grocery store, or chocolate chips, if you prefer.
- Add the chocolate pieces to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds on high, then remove and stir. Stirring is important, as the chocolate may not melt properly if you don't stir it.
- Repeat by microwaving as necessary for 15 second intervals until the chocolate has only a few lumps. Stir to melt any remaining lumps.
