- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 pound bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 2 tablespoons dark rum
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the water, cream, and honey and bring to a simmer over moderately high heat. Put the chocolate in a medium, heat-proof bowl and pour the hot cream mixture on top. Let stand until the chocolate melts, 1 minute, then stir until smooth. Stir in the rum.
