when you add the eggs you are supposed to add them slowly...try drizzling them in the the mixture.....and mix while you add it.....dont give it a chance to cook in your mixutre.

I hope that helpsyou may have to remove from heat if that doesnt work.

try tempering (sp) add a small amount of the hot liquid to your yolks before you add it to the whole batch. i think you add half of your mixture to the yolks slowly wisking the whole time. Then you pour all that back to the other half of the mixture (half with out eggs) That should mix wonderfully. hope this helps

My German Choc calls for the same ingredients. I add everything and whisk it a lot while it is cooking over a medium heat and haven't had any problems. I think the whisking part is really important!

You need to add all of these ingredients BEFORE you start cooking them. That is the way I make that icing - OR

If you make the cooked part then add the eggs, it is important to temper them - mix up the eggs a little in a small bowl then add a few tablespoons of the hot mixture to the eggs and mix it up again - then add that to the hot mixture in the pan.)

MrsMissey, you said exactly what I was about to say. lol That's what I use all the time and you have to keep stirring it with a whisk until it thickens. I make it in the microwave sometimes too and take it out and whisk it real good every couple minutes. That's only when I have other things to do at the same time. The results are the same. It's yummy!

Great timing huh?

I have never heard of doing it in the micro...I'll have to try that sometime! Certainly seems like a time saver to me! Thanks for that info!
