    Sage's Note:

    this is a fun fall project! You can of course roast your beets first; I took the lazy way out. If you want to use roasted beet, do them in the microwave.. Wear plastic gloves while working with the beets.

      Place the chopped chocolate and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a microwavable bowl and microwave on low, at 30 second intervals, until ingredients are melted.
