Chocolate Dipping Sauce

Chocolate Dipping Sauce


"This is a great sauce for a fresh fruit dip, but also great over ice cream. This sauce thickens more as it cools. If it's too thick you can thin it with some milk or cream to the consistency you like."

I thought that this was okay. My dinner guest, however, commented that it tasted like chocolate pudding. Next time, I'll go with a sauce that has real chocolate in it.

My guests ate it with spoons :-) Needs more milk than indicated in the recipe
