A miniature heating coil in the water would be all you'd need for heating the water, and if you added both a digital temperature gauge to the water and the inside of the chocolate cartridge (something with outside contacts that would automatically touch the inside contacts and provide a connection), then it could be monitored and kept between Ink Solidification and Torching The Printer.
