155g                       dark chocolate, chopped
155ml                    cream

Option 2: White Chocolate during winter
1kg                         white chocolate

Option 3: White Chocolate during summer
1.25kg                   white chocolate
375ml                    dreamwhip of cream

Directions:
1.       Pit chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Don’t let the base of the bowl sit in the water. Stir gently with a wooden spoon until smooth.
