In large bowl, beat 2 eggs until frothy. Gradually add sugar/water mixture and beat on highest speed for 5 minutes or until thick and lemon colored. Gradually add butter a small piece at a time, beating well after each addition. Add melted chocolate and beat until smooth. Spread filling carefully over preserves.

An easy way to drizzle the chocolate over the top is to put melted chocolate in a small ziplock bag and make a tiny snip in one corner.
