OH MY GOD ! This sauce is absolutely delicious ! I kept pouring more and more sauce over my piece of vanilla cake and now I have to struggle to keep myself from eating more cake and chocolate sauce. I guess I'm be gaining a few pounds soon :D

These 2 chocoholics definitely enjoyed your sauce, & I'll be keeping this recipe around to make again & again! Enjoyed it over a slice of cake I'd made, as well as topping a scoop of ice cream! We look forward to using it on other things as well! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current round of Pick A Chef]

Absolutely delicious. Served with vanilla cake & strawberries. Family couldn't get enough. When cake was finished served over vanilla frozen yogurt. The extra pounds says it all :) Thanks!
