Hi, I'm not much of a chef but I'm making chocolate bark for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day. (I'm recreating something we just had: a layer of white, a layer of dark and then dried blueberries on top. YUM.) I've never worked with chocolate before! Can I melt my chocolate in a crock pot or should I fashion a double boiler? Also, I was told to spread the chocolate in a "sheet pan" with a "liner." What liner? And can I just use a cookie sheet? How long will it take a layer to cool and harden? Should I put it in the fridge to help it harden? Thanks from a total newbie to the world of chocolate confections :-) -Eric
