for consistency issues i use a little cornstarch. If you don't like cornstarch i would think a small amount of gelatin would work to thicken as well. try adding some cognac for an adult version.
This recipe is missing something to thicken it. As published here you end up with something more akin to chocolate milk. I ended up melting 2 tblsp butter and 4 oz bitterwweet chocolate (unsweetened chocolate with additional splenda would work) and added in about half of this that I had made that hadn't thickened and it was the consistency and taste of hot fudge sauce.
This is a great little sauce for me to have as I try to follow the WW plan most days. It's just the right amount of sweetness for me and of course the added bonus of having the coffee flavor. I of course added just a touch more. But, then I went ahead and added a few more chocolate chips too. Great recipe for ME!!!
Pretty good. Nice taste. Mine didn't thicken very much. I was satisfied with the consistency, but it was probably a little thinner than some other chocolate sauces. Pretty good tho, i liked it. Thanks for sharing Susie.
