this is a Jacques Torres recipe--horribly easy:
1 cup heavy cream
2 1/2 Tbl honey
8 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped up, sitting in a big bowl
6 T butter
heat cream & honey in saucepan over medium-high heat until bubbly, pour half of it over chocolate. wait 30 seconds, then stir gently. pour the rest of the cream over, stir till chocolate is melted. throw in butter. stir till well blended.
pour into pre-baked tart shell (or pre-bought pie crust) and chill until set, about 1 1/2 hours.
