Melt the dark chocolate either in a double boiler or the microwave. If using double boiler, place chocolate in a heat proof bowl or pot over another pot filled with water. Simmer water, and stir chocolate until melted.
If using microwave, place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl (I used a glass measuring cup for easy pouring). Microwave in 10-15 second intervals, stirring between each time, until totally melted. Do not over cook, as chocolate will burn easily.
