  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips

  2. Place the bowl over the saucepan with simmering water and add in chocolate chips and cubed butter to the heat safe bowl. With a rubber spatula, fold and gently stir the chocolate and butter together until the chocolate begins to melt.

  4. Stir in the heavy cream slowly until just incorporated. Drizzle and serve immediately.
