Any tips  on adding hot melted chocolate to a cream mixture? Had trouble with bits of chocolate seizing up and the mixture not being smooth. Thanks for helpful suggestions.

I was making Zuccotto, Italian dessert, this particular one had a chocolate pastry cream center. So the pastry cream was already made you just needed to add the melted chocolate to flavor then eventually gets frozen once all put together.

The order of mixing doesn't sound right. Since chocolate is an integral parts of a chocolate pastry cream, shouldnt the melted chocolate be whisked in the pastry cream before the butter?
