A simple tip to remember when chopping chocolate for your cookies is that a block is easier to chop when it has been refrigerated; fifteen minutes will firm the bar. With a sharp knife slice the bar into slivers about ¼ inch. The bar will fragment as you cut it; heap the pieces together as you cut. Hold the knife over the pile steadying the knife tip with your free hand. Use the tip as a pivot and rock the knife back and forth as an arc until pieces are all cut the size desired. Transfer and shake the pieces through a sieve to shake it free of chocolate dust.
