250 g food-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa), chopped
150 g mini marshmallows
275 ml double cream
50 g butter, softened

Toss the chocolate chunks and marshmallows into a heavy-bottomed saucepan.
Dot with water and heat over slowest flame until the ingredients melt while making a point to stir frequently.
Turn off the heat and set aside.
