I've made this twice now. The first time I made only half to test the recipe with BF, brother, and me we all enjoyed it very much. The second time I made it for Thanksgiving dinner. I added a little vanilla and served with vanilla bean ice cream and it was a hit. Thanks so much, will definitely be making this often.
I too have been making this recipe for years and it was always a favourite. It is so simple to throw together and makes a lovely sauce. Add a little vanilla ice cream and this is a chocolate lovers paradise!!
It didn't look pretty at all. And the flavor was only entertaining because I'd read other reviews and added cinnamon & nutmeg for extra flavor. First serving was ok. Reheated--hard to swallow.
