This chocolate sauce is wonderful! The "thickness" is exactly what I expect of a fudge sauce. My sauce also did not boil but as I saw all the previous comments, I didn't worry and just cooked it for about 6 or 7 minutes on a medium heat. (I thought that by turning it up to medium I may have a better chance of getting it to a boil) I did constantly whisk the sauce.

This is pretty good! It turned out pretty good! The fudge sauce is a little thicker than I wanted...almost to pudding consistency!!! I will mix a little milk or heavy cream before serving!! We are having people over tonight for dinner: Taco bar with beans and rice....and for dessert: Homemade ice cream in a bag with Fudge sauce and Caramel topping (Kittencal's recipe: #78088)
