When I make this, I actually use 16oz semi sweet chocolate chips and 16oz heavy whipping cream. I heat the cream in microwave for aprox 3 to 4 min. I then pour it over my chips (which are in my Ninja blender). I let it set for 2 minutes then I pulse it a few times. This will make if pourable. If you want to whip it for a frosting (which is what I do). I let it set out for 2 hours to get room temp and then whip it on high for about 8 -10 min or until it has whippy like consistancy.
I agree - the recipe is wrong as written. I used 3-4 times the chocolate indicated to make it the right consistency to use as a filling.
its supposed to be one cup not one quart of heavy whipping cream
I mixed and mixed and mixed and this never became "soft peaks" it was very runny.
