4.5 ounces milk, white, bitter-, or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
scant 1/2 cup (about 7 ounces or 218 ml) heavy cream
Place the chocolate in a medium bowl.
Bring the heavy cream to a gentle boil. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate, and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Whisk the cream and (now melted) chocolate together into smooth and glossy.
