Melt 150 grams of ruby melts in the microwave. Pour the melts in a bowl suitable for the microwave. Melt at maximum power (±800W) in the microwave. To evenly spread the temperature, remove the chocolate every 15-20 seconds and stir well. Stop heating when the chocolate is almost completely melted (small bits of chocolate can still be seen). Keep stirring until the chocolate is dissolved and put it in a piping bag. Cut off a small tip and let the melts slide down the edge. Put it back in the fridge so that the ruby can stiffen.
