Which type of chocolate melts faster, white or dark?

Since dark clothes make you hotter than lighter colored clothes do, I think that dark chocolate would melt faster than white chocolate.
Interesting question and observation. :)
However, I believe white chocolate actually melts faster as it has a very low burning point.
It's not easy to melt white chocolate in the microwave like you can with milk or dark chocolate. You really need to melt it over a double boiler being very careful not to get even a drip of water or moisture in it.
Don't let the bottom of the bowl touch the simmering water and keep the water only lightly simmering.
I prefer milk and dark chocolate to white chocolate, but it can be so lovely as a decorative touch. It's well worth using!
