This is a simple and delicious fudge sauce and I appreciate the smaller quantity. I used evaporated milk, though if not for the requirements of the challenge I made this for, I would have used half and half, as I now have an open can of evaporated milk I'm not sure what to do with. I also used 72% Dark Chocolate & half the sugar, as we don't like overly sweet chocolate sauce; if I had used the semisweet I wouldn't have added any sugar. I cooked this up in the microwave quick and easy. So far I've dipped my fingers in it and served some over Ben & Jerry's vanilla bean ice cream, can't wait to try on a few other goodies!

So quick, so delicious and oh so easy - what more could you ask for. Served with Debbwl's Pears Helene makes it even better. Confess to making earlier and just reheating in the microwave before serving and it was perfect. Thank you Debbwl, made for Make My Recipe - Edition 11.
