Mixing melted chocolate with thick cream?

It always starts to set really quickly and by the time I pour it onto my cheesecake base it has thick glumps of chocolate in it. Still tastes awesome but is there any tips as to how I can mix the melted choc and cream together! I go as fast as I can but it still happens! lol TIA.

I heat up cream & add chopped choc & use blender to mix.

I heat the chocolate in the microwave. (it works well and makes it nice and drippy.). helen65018 so you heat the cream and chocolate together!

The cream and the chocolate has to be melted together I think - it is the fat in cream or butter that makes the chocolate liquid and silky. imo anyway ;)

I agree with #3 - putting chopped chocolate into hot cream works best.

cream is too cold

This!

Cold cream will cool chocolate down quickly so you need to warm the cream up and add to the melted chocolate

I have always had the best results heating the two up together, in the microwave, a minute at a time, with a good stir in between. If only a small amount, then half a minute at a time. Has never failed for me.
