Cut the chocolate into small pieces.
Place the chocolate, butter, marshmallows, and water into a saucepan.
On a low heat melt the ingredients, stirring occasionally. Once all mixed in together, remove from heat and leave to cool.
Next, whip the cream with the vanilla extract until it reaches a thick consistency, and then fold into the chocolate mixture until you have a smooth silky texture.
Pour into 2 ramekins, and place in the fridge to chill until after dinner.
