As a child, I like to conduct experiment in the kitchen. Read an article about melting chocolate and decided to try it myself. The instruction was to place the chocolate into a bowl and put that bowl into a pot of boiling water.
I misunderstood it completely and tossed a bunch of chocolate into a bowl of hot water, which was also sitting in a pot of hot water. The chocolate did melt and also kind of dissolved into the boiling water.
