3/4 pound semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, at room temperature, coarsely chopped
4 large egg yolks

  3. Scrape this mixture into the saucepan and whisk constantly until smooth. Stir in the rum and butter.
  4. Pour the custard into eight 1/2-cup ramekins or espresso cups and refrigerate until chilled, at least 4 hours.
