  4. Meanwhile, combine dark chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler and whisk until smooth. Set aside.*

*A double broiler is a set of two fitted saucepans that are stacked together with space between them. If you don’t have a double broiler, you can substitute by using a large saucepan filled with 2 inches of water and a steel-mixing bowl placed inside of it. Bring the water to a simmer before placing the mixing bowl with the ingredients in the pan.

In Step 1, you mention adding cacao nibs to the food processor; however, they aren't a part of the recipe. How much is used?

I don't want to be mean because these sound delicious but the correct term is double boiler not broiler. You are boiling the items on the stove top not broiling them inside the oven.
