Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking
Start off by putting the chocolate truffle sauce, butter, creme fraiche and Cognac into a heatproof bowl, then place the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl doesn’t actually touch the water.

Serve with a generous amount of cream or creme fraiche.
