1. Create a double boiler by adding about 1/2 a pot full of water into your pot bring to a boil.
2. Grab your heat-proof bowl and set it on top of your boiling water (make sure the water is not touching the bottom of the bowl).
3. Add your chocolate chips and all of your heavy cream to the bowl and let melt together.
4. Stir frequently to avoid chocolate sticking to the sides of the bowl and scorching.
5. After it is all melted together add your optional coffee and stir.
6. Serve hot!
