Ingredients and Supplies
Chocolate goes into a clump, or "seizes".
-Water or steam got into the chocolate.
-Chocolate became too warm when melting. It cooked instead of melting and turned into a clump. If chocolate has clumped, it may not be salvageable. You may try adding vegetable oil to thin. If chocolate does not taste scorched, mix nuts into the seized chocolate and spoon mounds onto parchment paper.
