Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
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.
Just made this sauce and love it! SO easy, had all ingredients in pantry! Rich chocolate taste, creamy, only thing I changed was simmering time. Took it from 6 minutes down to about 4 because it was thick and I didn't want to scorch it. Still turned out great!
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!
Just made this tonight and it turned out pretty good. I must admit that I think that will add a little more sugar next time. Delicious!
I found the consistency of this unpleasantly gelatinous, and it wasn't quite sweet enough either. I'll be going back to Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce, also on this site.
