I don't usually rate recipes, but felt this one was rated too low. I've made it several times, and refill my 'Smucker's Sundae Syrup' bottle. No one knows the difference, and it is a lot more economical! I follow the recipe exactly, but only simmer for about 3 minutes, and it is thick enough. Perfect amount of chocolate and sweetness.

I loved this chocolate sauce....deep, rich fudgy flavor and a beautiful, silky texture. It was thick enough to coat a spoon and then some! Being also quick and simple to put together, makes it a keeper in my book.

nice flavour, not too sweet, needed more milk for a pouring consistency. Slightly gelatinous texture, one of my kids disliked. Not the best sauce I've had, sauce tended to form a skin due to milk content, however easy to make from store cupboard ingredients .
