  1. I made this as is and only gave it 4 stars because I thought it was good but just slightly too sugary. I then added another tablespoon of cocoa and it was perfect! Thanks for the recipe
  2. This is better than any chocolate sauce I have ever eaten. and it is soooooo easy to make. I will not buy store sauce ever again!!!
  3. My new favorite chocolate sauce! It is delicious and easy to make too. I cut homemade brownies into hearts and teddy bear shapes for my grandchildren, added a scoop of ice cream and drizzled your excellent chocolate sauce on top. Then, to make it extra decadent, I topped each serving with a dollop of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry with the stem on top!
  4. YUUMM!! This quick and easy sauce is very delicious. I used it warm over vanilla bean ice cream and my family devoured it. It is much better than any store-bought sauce. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.


I was born and raised in South Africa but now live in Delaware USA. Since I can remember I have been cooking! My first real cooking experience was when I was 7. I came home from school one afternoon and felt like French toast. My elder brother was home with his friends and did not want to make it for me, so I got a pan out, put it on the stove, turned the stove on to high. After that I could not remember what to do, but I knew that French toast involved bread so I put the bread in the hot pan without grease and poured milk over it! Oy vey... My brother's friend asked me what I was trying to make and I told him. He laughed and told me I was making it wrong but he also taught me how to make French toast the right way. I came home every day after that and made French toast. I felt so confident with the little bit of knowledge I had acquired that I soon started experimenting with other things. Nothing was going to stop me! The first full meal I ever made for my family was boiled rice and oven roasted chicken pieces with a steamed vegetable medley. I was 8 years old and my mom was in hospital. My dad was struggling to hold down an intensely busy job, keep the family going and be with my mom, so I thought I would help him. I don't think he believed that I had done it on my own. I remember telling him that I read in a cookery book how to make a roast chicken but I did not know what "a" rosemary was so I just put the chicken in the dish without it. Decades later with a myriad tried and tested recipes behind me - flops and failures included - I know my way around any food item and kitchen utensil, much to my family's delight!
