Very good. I used 2/3 cup milk in place of the water after reading other reviews. Turned out a little thick after it cooled so I stirred in couple TBSP milk to get my desired consistency. 10-18-08: The consistency of the sauce is perfect when I use 1 cup milk in place of the 1 1/4 cups water with out adding extra milk at the end.
The only reason I gave a star was because it looked like chocolate. I did what I was told, but it smelled bitter and tasted soooo bitter! I put on pastries and if I had used something else, they would have been perfect. I was very very very disappointed. It didn't even taste like chocolate. :'(
Wonderful ! With 5 kids and a husband who eat ice cream almost every night, the cost of chocolate syrup gets up there a bit. I changed it a bit - 1/2 c white corn syrup (thickened it just enough), 1/2 c milk and 1/4 c water, instead of the 1 1/4 c water. It's perfect this way. Just the consistency of Hersheys. Kids say we should "never buy the store stuff again"
My boyfriend thought that this was great! I did what someone suggested and added the 1/2 cup white syrup, 1/2 cup milk and 1/4 cup water instead of the 1 1/4 cup water.
This recipe was so easy and it was exactly what I was looking for. I have tried 3 others before this one, and when you put them in the fridge they are too thick (consistency of peanut butter). This one is truly a sauce. I did use milk instead of water and added 2 Tbsp corn syrup to thicken it a bit. I can put this recipe in the fridge and without having to heat it up when I take it out, I can pour it on anything I want.
I put the sauce in little jars, and will hand them out at my chocolate tasting party this weekend. It makes a great gift!
A rich chocolate flavor, definitely will come in handy for all sorts of things =) I used 1 cup water. I let it boil for 5mins, stirring constantly, to let it thicken some more. It also thickens as it cools, so don't worry if it seems runny at first. Even better- its almost fat free!
After reading the reviews, I cut the water down to a cup & simmered it (over low heat so as not to burn) for about 5 minutes. It was still pretty thin but OK. Poured it into a hershey's chocolate syrup bottle I had saved & used it in my grandson's milk. He was happy so I am too. Thansk for the recipe...I don't think hershey's is going to get any more of my money. ;o)
This sauce is wonderful! Add a pince of cinnamon for a little mexican touch. It takes a few minutes of stirring to cook...it is well worth any efforts put forth in stirring.
