    I boiled some water than put another smaller pot in the water with the chocolate and heavy cream. After it was done and put in the fridge for 2 hours it was really runny.
    I also didn't have a great taste. I added some powered suger to it and whipped it with a blender for five minutes. It is perfect now. Everybody loved it.

    I've tried this recipe several times and have not had a problem with it being runny. You REALLY have to chill the chocolate concoction. At least 6 hours. Also a tip, throw your mixer bowl and whip attachment into the fridge to chill too. It really helps!

    My daughter followed this recipe to a 't' and she could not get it to thicken when she whipped it after chilling it for about 2 hours. It was very runny and it soaked into the cake and caused the cake to become very hard. Is it possible something was left out of this recipe? It sounds great, but did not work out.

    I'm assuming you just add food coloring...
