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
