moreChoose a chocolate that you enjoy consuming by itself. Melt chocolate over a bain marie. Or you can use a microwave. Melt the chocolate in short intervals in the microwave until most of it is melted. Then stir the chocolate until it's all melted.

Bring the cream and cocoa powder to a light boil on the stove, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir into melted chocolate. Strain and allow to cool slightly before using.
