Repeat for additional 20 second heat increments until most of chocolate is melted.Continue stirring until completely melted. Set aside.
2. Put whipping cream into a bowl and use an electric mixer to whip it into stiff peaks, set aside
3. Whisk together egg yolks, sugar and water in the top of a double boiler. Place over it simmering
water. Whisk continuously until temperature reaches 160 F or yolks thicken and coat the back of a
