Preheat oven to 180°C/355°F. Place parts of the butter, espresso, honey, and milk in a saucepan. Slowly heat until butter is melted.

Transfer dough to 2 springform pans. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C/355°F for approx. 25 min.
In the meantime, roughly chop chocolate. Heat heavy cream in a saucepan. Next, combine hot heavy cream, chocolate, and remaining butter in a large bowl. Stir until fully combined and set aside to cool for approx. 8 – 10 min.
