How can I thicken the icing I'm making from chocolate chips and light cream?

I was making icing with cream and chocolate chips. I was supposed to use heavy cream but bought light cream by mistake. Decided to go ahead and try to make it anyway. It's too watery. Any ideas on how to thicken it ?

Folding in the whipped cream or egg whites won't give you a ganache buy at least you would be able to use it.

Butter will work, though it will run in a warm room. If making a ganache, it's always best to use heavy cream for a thicker product. You might also try whipping it with the whisk attachment on a stand blender to fluff it up and add more air (not sure if this work with the particular cream you are using).
