Another of Kyla's creations!! This is so super delicious. I think it would be heavenly in a pie as well, but is really good just like this!

1/2 cup water, divided
2 tablespoons butter (no substitutes)

In the microwave, heat chocolate, 1/4 cup water and butter until the chocolate and butter are melted. Cool for 10 minutes. In a small saucepan, whisk egg yolks, sugar and the rest of the water.
