Notes

Tips on how to melt the chocolate:
The easiest way is the microwave. Place the chocolate together with the coconut milk in a bowl and heat at medium power for 1 minute and then in intervals of 30 seconds. Every time you take it our, stir the chocolate and put it back in the microwave. Another option is over a bain marie. To melt chocolate in a bain marie, you only need a pot and a heatproof bowl. Cover the bottom of a pot with water and place the bowl on top of it. It's important that the bowl doesn't touch the bottom of the pot. Then, heat it over low power so that the water takes temperature gradually. Stir the chocolate till its completely melted.
