Slowly add cooled melted chocolate and beat well, till you've got a spreadable consistency.

If that doesn't work, you can also try beating the cream in a separate bowl till stiff, then fold it in..........

I'm sorry this is giving you such a fit, and I know exactly how you feel. I made Chocolate Mousse twice last week. One batch came out perfect, and the other was just soupy. I'm just gonna blame it on the weather.......lol

Try adding chocolate instant pudding mix.
