Very easy! I usually make a Barefoot Contessa recipe that is just 1/2 pt heavy cream and 2 c. chocolate chips. But while at the store I grabbed whipping cream by mistake, which brought me to this recipe. It was very easy, just like my original recipe. I combine all in a saucepan and cook over low heat until melted. It takes a little longer to set but I like this method better for some reason.
