Get a pot of about 2-3 inches of water boiling. We’re going to melt the chocolate over it. Add your chocolate to a mixing bowl, reserving 30% of it on the side. We’ll use that to temper it.

Melt the chocolate until it reaches just below 130F, then remove from heat. Add the remaining chocolate in batches, until it hits 90F, then stop adding chocolate and mix until it hits 82-84F. Bring the chocolate back to 90F and now it’s ready to use.
