Melt chocolate and cool to lukewarm. Cream butter and sugar until very light and fluffy and sugar is no longer grandulated. This may take up to 5 minutes or more. Stir in chocolate and mix well.

Beat eggs in one at a time scraping bowl well after each addition. Beat until no trace of sugar is present.
