"I've been making this recipe for about a year now. It's fantastic! We use it for an ice cream topping and for chocolate milk. And the longer you cook it, the thicker it gets. So if you like more of a fudge consistency, cook it for about 10 minutes. Awesome and simple recipe!"
"It was fast and easy, but it didn't taste very good. The strong cocoa flavour came out as being very bitter, and it definitely wasn't sweet enough. The consistency was quite thin as well."
"Bleh! This didn't taste right. Both too much cocoa and sugar. It did not taste like any chocolate syrup I've tasted. I couldn't eat it."
"Fast, easy and I made mine with Splenda. Loved it."
"Great Recipe! Perfect for frozen mocha coffees! Super easy to make-much better than the store brand stuff not to mention I usually have on hand all the ingredients, all of which I can pronounce-huge bonus! Thanks for Posting, Di ;-) Update: I made another batch today using cold coffee rather than water-excellent!!!!!"
"This tastes wonderful. I must have boiled mine longer than other reviewers though. Whe I cooled it in the fridge it became more like fudge sauce, not at all pourable. Wow, what a great flavor."
"Oh my, what a wonderful recipe for chocolate syrup...I think even better than the store-bought brand....The only thing I changed was I used 1 cup of water with 1/2 cup whipping cream, for a more creamy taste, and added a little more sugar, cause DH and myself have a sweet tooth. I made this to use in my Bailey's fudge cake #76512...it turned out great with your wonderful homemade syrup. I will use the remaining sauce over icecream....Thanx Wildheart for a delicious chocolate syrup recipe...this is a keeper:-) :-)"
"Delicious and not overly sweet like some other recipes. Worked equally well in hot and cold drinks."
"This is great, I made mine as directed with monk fruit for a sugar free treat. Awesome!"
"So good and so easy! I was lazy and decided to make it in the microwave. Whisked everything together well and then cooked for 2:30 on high, whisked again and cooked an additional 1:00, whisked again. Turned out great!"
"This is good as is but I sometimes add a 1/4 tsp of almond or orange extract for a change."
"Great recipe. Thanks for posting."
"I only made half a cup (I didn't need much..it's just for drink garnishing...) It turned out great!! thank you!! :9"
"We can't even buy real chocolate syrup here. It no longer matters. I halved this and used to make a Bailey's cream copycat recipe, then dumped some in a bottle of milk and shook it up for a taste. Really a super fast, super easy super cheap recipe!
It came out thick enough for me.
Just want to add, this is still one of lmy favorite recipes on the entire site.
Warning though--use a big pan, bigger than you think you need and be vigilant, will boil over fast."
"very good, a little thin but my kids don't even know the difference!"
"This is the perfect small portion recipe that we have tried.
Follow the recipe exactly, even when scaling up or down: too much vanilla extract will RUIN the flavor; easy on the "dash" of salt.
"Oh yummy! I'm going to try this with maple syrup next time, but this is delish!!!"
