Liquid chocolate is essentially no more than melted chocolate to which some clarified butter and boiling water are added to thin the melted chocolate. Just 1 Tablespoon clarified unsalted butter and 1/3 Cup boiling water are added to 2 ounces of chocolate. For this recipe, use dark chocolate. Melt chocolate in a bowl set over boiling water. When melted, add the water and butter and blend while still over the boiling water. Use immediately to make this liqueur.
