Help!
I swear I've made this recipe years ago and had no issues... I've tried twice in the past week and it's just getting worse!
1st attempt was better though.

Using this recipe & method but changed the chocolate to galaxy

Are you using low fat cream cheese? That gets runny when mixed. Not whipping cream enough?

Ah I think attempt #2 I used low fat cheese...
Slightly overwhipped the cream today but it's still runny!

Are you using full fat cream cheese?

Lat time this happened to us, DD put it in a pot in the freezer and turned it into the most amazing ice cream.

You just have to stir it a few times while it's freezing to get the right texture.

We didn't work out what went wrong so can't help with that bit, sorry.

I've shoved it back in the freezer for now out of sight out of mind
Hoping that helps it set a little more

I wonder if mixing icing sugar in would thicken it
