 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      package       semisweet chocolate -- 8 squares or
    2      packages      sweet chocolate bars -- 4 oz. each
 
     Microwave chocolate in medium bowl on high 2 to 3 minutes or until
 almost melted, stirring halfway through heating time. Stir until chocolate
 is completely melted.
 Spoon a scant tablespoon of chocolate onto a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet
 or tray. Spread each pool with a spatula to form a 2-inch circle.
 Immediately sprinkle with garnishes. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until
 chocolate is firm. Store leftover Chocolate Pools in refrigerator.
