This is the simplest chocolate fudge sauce in existence, and the healthiest! I'll be making this again and again. It may be that it became fudgy rather than saucy because I reduced it to 1/4 recipe (kids are grown, hubby gets migraines from chocolate) and even 4 minutes was too long to boil, but YUM!!! Just what I wanted! ... Oh, yeah--add a touch of butter & vanilla when you remove from heat for best flavor and fudginess. :-)

Easy and delicious! I use the agave nectar instead of maple syrup and it tastes perfect. Make bobbiann's no bake cheesecake (I use a different crust and sub agave nectar) from her recipe) and drizzle this syrup on top (chilled) for a delicious low glycemic index treat. Thanks.

Easy to make. Had to add more maple syrup than called for but still a bit too cocoa flavored,not sure if that is my taste problem, but will work on this recipe. I am putting this in my keeper file! thank you!
