Heating a chocolate bar a little?

KUF | Oct 30, 201907:20 AM     1

Hi. I am looking for a way to cut bigger slabs of 8 mm dark, milk and white chocolate into smaller bars for ease of production. Instead of pouring them into individial molds I would like to cut them in to different sizes so I have more freedom of size. Here is my question: Is it possible to heat an already tempered bar in for example a heating cabinet to a temperature where it won't go out of temper but will get a little bit softer so they can be cut with for example a guitar cutter? I hope this forum can help me with an answer for this.
