  3. Heat up about two cups of water in a medium size pot, and once it boils reduce the heat so the water simmers. Set the bowl with the chocolate, chopped butter, and milk on top of the pot with the simmering water.

  4. As the bowl contents begin to melt, stir them gently together using a spatula until the mixture becomes uniform and smooth.
