Insert the metal blade. Pulse to roughly chop the chocolates, 10 times. Melt the butter. With the machine running, carefully pour the hot butter through the small feed tube and process until the chocolate is melted and smooth, about 40 seconds. Add the sugars and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Scrape the work bowl. Add the eggs and vanilla, process to combine, about 10 seconds. Scrape the work bowl.
