- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 2. Microwave chocolate and 3 tablespoons water in small microwave-safe bowl on medium 3 to 4 minutes or until melted; stir until smooth. Pour into medium bowl; cool until about 85°F. (a small dab on your upper lip will feel slightly cool).
- 3. Beat cream in medium bowl at medium-high speed until soft peaks barely form. Beat in vanilla. Carefully fold into cooled chocolate mixture (it will seem very soft).
