In a double boiler over simmering water, add chocolate chips. Melt, stirring occasionally. In two parts, add the whipping cream, stirring well to incorporate. Turn heat down to medium low. Add egg yolks and vanilla extract. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes, until chocolate is warm and slightly thickened.
