    I melted semi-sweet chocolate in the double boiler. You can use milk chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, or even white chocolate instead. Semi-sweet is the perfect coating for these creamy peanut butter truffles because it isn t overly sweet. If you do not have a double boiler, use the microwave to melt the chocolate instead. See step #4 in the recipe below for my careful instructions for doing so.
