    In pan, over medium heat, mix the 1/2 cup cream, milk, vanilla and salt and slowly bring to a boil. Whip the pint of cream with the powdered sugar until soft peaks form; set aside. Put chopped chocolate into a small pot or heavy bowl. Melt by pouring the hot milk mixture on top, and thoroughly whisking until all chocolate is melted. Pour melted chocolate back into pan.
