A question about a recipe: White Chocolate Snowflakes

When using a double boiler, is the water supposed to be touching the bottom of the pan that is set inside? Or does it even make a difference?

No, the bottom of the pan should not touch the water -- the idea is that the steam is doing the cooking, not the boiling water itself.
