Ingredients 

1 cup Plugrá® European-Style Butter, unsalted
12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

1 cup sugar

1. Melt chocolate and Plugrá Butter over a bain-marie. Remove from heat when completely melted and smooth.

6. Let cool completely before turning out of moulds.
7. Once turned out of moulds, let sit one hour at room temperature before serving. Place on a cool plate.
