Agreed. Excellent method. And if you want to keep it fresh for a few days, I would recommend letting it dry thoroughly.

comment Can I use Chocolate Chips in place of Semi-sweet baking chocolate?
I tentatively agree- it depends upon the recipe. Chocolate chips melt differently, so aren't a good substitution in candy- and truffle-making, but in cookies & such, I don't think it will make much difference.

Sharpness is the key. A few swipes with a sharpening steel before you cut is always a good idea.

comment What can replace milk in crepes?
Crepes are very forgiving, though... Watered-down cream or cream mixed with yogurt (PLAIN yogurt) might work just fine.
