  • Transfer saucepan to stovetop, and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Bring to a boil (about 10 minutes), then boil 2 minutes.

  • Remove from heat and add chopped chocolate. Stir until all pieces are melted. Stir in vanilla. Strain into a large bowl, then either cover surface with plastic wrap or divide into individual cups and cover. Refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours. Serve with whipped cream or whipped topping, dusted with cocoa, if desired.
