I don't usually rate recipes, but felt this one was rated too low. I've made it several times, and refill my 'Smucker's Sundae Syrup' bottle. No one knows the difference, and it is a lot more economical! I follow the recipe exactly, but only simmer for about 3 minutes, and it is thick enough. Perfect amount of chocolate and sweetness.

nice flavour, not too sweet, needed more milk for a pouring consistency. Slightly gelatinous texture, one of my kids disliked. Not the best sauce I've had, sauce tended to form a skin due to milk content, however easy to make from store cupboard ingredients .

I loved this chocolate sauce....deep, rich fudgy flavor and a beautiful, silky texture. It was thick enough to coat a spoon and then some! Being also quick and simple to put together, makes it a keeper in my book.

The flavor is wonderful, rich and chocolately but if I had followed the instructions I would have had a loose pudding. I never brought the heat higher than medium-low and reduced it as low as I could as soon as it came to a simmer. I doubt I cooked this for more than 4 minutes and it is really a bit thicker than I would prefer. I am already thinking of dark chocolate powder and perhaps less flour for the next time. Thanks, Chef John!

I usually make Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce, but decided to try this one tonight. I'm torn because I like Sue's is better, yet it calls for 1/2 cup butter and this one only uses 2 TBS. I'm not concerned about calories, so I'll probably continue to use Sue's, but this was quite good.

I made this after seeing it under the new reviews and really craving chocolate. I read the reviews first and one person that makes it all the time said it only needed 3 minutes of simmering. I made 1/2 recipe and only simmered for at most 2 minutes. After the milk began to boil, I turned it down to low or 3 on my stove for about a minute whisking and then on off and continued to whisk another 30 seconds to 1 minute instead of turning the stove to medium-high. I have found over cooking stuff like this can cause grittiness or other issues. Although, this tasted fine it honestly reminded me much more of chocolate gravy from this site than the rich, thick, and creamy chocolate dessert toppings I have made.

It was Ok. Mild flavor (I had to add more sugar- 1 tbs) and I agree with the comment below, it was somewhat 'gelatinous' in consistency. I guess it depends on what you like.
