confusing...., Member zeniada1

this said it was easy... but I followed the directions to the letter and it took forever for the chocolate mixture to cook... the chocolate wouldn't melt and it didn't thicken up.. it said cook for 10 or until mixture thickens... it never did, more than half of the mixture evaporated! What did I do wrong... ended up cooking it over direct heat it finally thickened... but I wont be making this again....
