Top Review by Bobbin

This recipe is so easy to make that I had my kids help me. I made as directed EXCEPT I left out the corn syrup. It truly is not needed. This would be excellent on ice cream. We used it this morning to make chocolate milk and it was wonderful. My husband even said it was better than the store bought stuff; it tastes like hot fudge milk to me (hot fudge sauce mixed with milk)! It does thicken in the fridge, but it still dissolves in the milk once stirred. Yummy!
