Chop the dark cooking chocolate roughly. We will melt the chopped chocolate in a double boiler.

In a deep saucepan, heat about 2 cups of water. Once it starts simmering, place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl, place this bowl on top of the saucepan with the water below. The bowl on the top should not touch the water when melting the chocolate. Please be careful.

The chocolate will start melting in a few minutes since it is chopped. Stir a few times with a wooden or silicone spatula.

Take the bowl with the melted chocolate off the saucepan, place it on a kitchen towel on the work surface. Ensure no water droplets get into the melted chocolate else the chocolate will seize and cause complications with the rest of the steps.

Next, pour the condensed milk. Mix with a spatula.

Also, add that knob of butter. Mix well and be quick as the consensed milk thickens the whole mixture rather quickly.
