9 ounces chocolate
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon rum (dark)
Chop bittersweet chocolate and place into a medium bowl. In a small sauce pan, heat the heavy cream over medium. Bring to a rolling boil, then immediately pour over the chocolate in the bowl. Whisk ingredients together until creamy. Add in the dark rum if you prefer, but this is optional.
Let cool before using. You can drizzle over a cake, or even dip strawberries. If you want a fluffy frosting, to use as a filling, let cool until thick, then use a whisk to beat until fluffy.
