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.

Super! Use a bigger pan than you think you'll need though. Pretty much the same ingredients for fudge, but thinnner and easier. Good one.

Midnight craving fulfilled despite an empty chocolate sauce can! Thank you for a terrific recipe and one that's so fast and easy too. Who knew! We liked the fact that it wasn't too sweet with a very rich chocolate flavor.<br/><br/>This is going to save me a lot of money on packaged goods too.

Absolutely wonderful! I keep a jar of this delicious sauce in the fridge almost all the time. I put the water in the microwave and get it hot while I'm mixing the dry ingredients (I add some cornstarch to thicken it). Then I mix it and bring it to a boil. I also add some butter once it's off the heat. So easy and oooh so delicious!

We LOVE this stuff! This is my second time to make a batch and it is so easy and delicious. I have never liked the Hershey's stuff because of all the "stuff" in it; this tastes better than Hershey's and has common ingredients in it. It is great in milk or over ice cream. I put mine in a squeeze bottle and store in the refrigerator.

I didn't want to go into town for syrup so having all the ingredients on hand I made this syrup. I'm really impressed and will probably never buy chocolate syrup again. I'm drizzling it over some profiteroles for desert tonight. thanks for a great recipe.

Easy! Delicious! Fast! Throw away your Hershey's, indeed! I used as an ice cream topping for a relative who can't have artificial colors or flavors. Huge hit!
