I actually used a microwave for the first 2 steps, which worked well. Very similar to another spread ~ this was wonderful on pancakes, crumpets and even was lovely as a cake filling. Chocolatey rich, soft and creamy with just a bitter hint from the dark chocolate, this spread disappeared in no time here. I would really like to try the hazelnut option next time.
