did it crystalize,(seized), if it didn't try adding more heavy cream to it.

it seized icon_sad.gif I added a little corn syrup, I think that helped. But now maybe it won't harden.

It likely was a little thick because it was too hot. If it happens again, just try taking it off the heat. You can sit the bowl on a towel for a few minutes and stir it and it will cool down. If you let it stay on the heat it will burn.
