If you get water or steam in there or if you heat the chocolate up too much, it can seize up and then it won’t be smooth.
It’s important to stir the chocolate a lot as it melts and use the microwave rather than melting it in a pan on the stove. If it still seizes up, just mix in some vegetable shortening and that should smooth it back out again.
It doesn’t matter whether you use mint extract or peppermint extract. Either one will add that lovely minty touch. Or, if you’re not making this over the Christmas period, leave it out if you want.
