This sauce is great...the consistency is a lot like the dairy queen stuff. I did find it a little sweet and not really 'chocolatey' enough. I would probably, instead of one ounce of chocolate, add 2 or maybe even 3. I'll let you know when I try that! All in all, not bad with vanilla ice cream, and peanuts!

Very silky fudge sauce. It does firm up a lot to a chewy texture on top of ice cream. Something missing, not quite sure what...EDIT: Downgraded to 2 stars as it becomes "chunky" grainy after 3 days in fridge. My mom makes a great sauce that does become "fudgy-grainy?" but this was not the same, just chunky. If I ever make again, we'll eat immediately after it is cooked.

Fantastic recipe! This is by far the easiest fudge sauce I've ever made. It's very fast and easy to make, and it's absolutely delicious! It tastes a lot like Dairy Queen's hot fudge sauce, which I love! This is my #1 fudge sauce recipe now - thank you so much for sharing it! :)

This is an excellent old fashioned true fudge recipe and it will thicken a lot when refrigerate but heat it in the microwave and it's delicious again. The grainy texture is what makes it like true fudge and not the creamy fudge you buy in the store. The absolute best!

I disagree...this does NOT at all taste like Dairy Queen's sauce, nor is it the same consistency. It's very thin and too sweet, not enough chocolate. When I tried it adding more chocolate, it became too chewy (almost hard) and caramel like in texture when placed on ice cream. Save yourself time and money and get Smucker's Special Recipe Hot Fudge. It's the closest thing on the market to DQ!

The recipe was easily to follow, very simple. I was a bit baffled as to which corn syrup to use- light or dark. I used dark-I figured that the color would complement that of the chocolate and that was the only one I had readily available. The sauce was a bit to sweet for me. But that might have been on my part - dark corn syrup adds a caramel flavor. But If that isn't the case, I recommend adding a little less sugar, perhaps a tbsp less, or such. I don't know. The sauce will thicken a little after the saucepan is removed from the heat. The texture was just about right, not too gummy, but not too watery. If the sauce is used to top ice cream (or another other frozen dessert, I am sure), it will become a little chewy, but not disgustingly chewy. Overall, I was satisfied. I would recommend this recipe for beginners. And just on a side note, make sure to use low heat to medium-low heat when melting the chocolate and butter as not to burn them.

this was absolutely a total flop! It hardened like hard candy on my ice cream - I followed the recipe exactly - It took me forever to clean my pot!

I have been trying to make my mother's fudge sauce that we used to pour over ice cream. We loved the taste but what we really loved was the fact that when it hit the cold ice cream, it would harden slightly and become chewy. Mom never used a recipe and at 87, she doesn't remember how she achieved that. This recipe comes very close! Thank you for helping to bring back fond memories!
