exactly that. bring a pot to a simmer and put a bowl bigger than the pot rim on top and melt the chocolate in the bowl using the heat from the simmering water. It is supposed to help the chocolate not to burn.

This is what a double boiler is made to do, but you can use any saucepans that fit into each other properly.

Make sure the simmering water does not touch the bottom of the upper container.

I don't have a double boiler so what i do is this. I bring a deep pot of water to boil. Then I hold the bowl of choco over that very close. Then stir and stir and stir. It helps that I have a couple of ove gloves but imagine it would have the same effect with two good oven mits as well. Best of luck to you.
