    Steve_G's Note:

    This syrup is concentrated stuff, use 1-2 tsp in 8 oz of milk. It's ultra-chocolatey, with a deep cocoa flavor, and not too sweet. This syrup is thick and smooth with a shine ...a chocolate syrup for adults. Use Dutch process cocoa powder if you want the finished product to have the beautifully deep color and flavor to which all good chocolate syrups should aspire.

      Steve, this is great! I halved the recipe and made it just 5 minutes back. Its 1:45am:) I was having this 'thing' for having something sweet right now and since I have a little friend(5 yr kid) coming home tomorrow morning (who loves chocolate), I thought it would be great to gift some to her. Hence, went n made it! Glad I did! Its a good chocolate syrup, not too sweet like you have mentioned. That makes it a winner in my books:)! Thanks for the recipe! UPDATE: I made this sauce and after it had cooled, I stored it in my refrigerator for 4 hours. Then, for dessert, I poured a tbsp. of this heavenly sauce over 1 Zebra cake and ate it. It was AWESOME!!!! Makes a whole new dessert for my family and me. Thank you for the delicious sauce recipe, all over again:)

      This is another person craving "something sweet" in the middle of the night. I wanted chocolate sauce (syrup) with my vanilla ice cream and that's all there was to it!! I am so glad I make this. I really am. You are so right the colour is deep. It is lush. I find bought chocolate syrup (sauce) is mostly too sweet for my liking. This one is not too sweet at all. I agree, a very adult chocolate sauce. This is a winner. It is easy to make therefore I have no excuse to buy chocolate sauce again. Thank you Steve for sharing this recipe with us.

      I like my chocolate syrup to be sweet so I increased the amount of sugar to 2 cups. The syrup still turned out just fine and tastes wonderful. This is a great recipe, and something I will be making again. Thanks for the recipe.
