The Making of Hot Fudge Sauce

Recently, after seeing a photo of someone who made hot fudge sauce, I thought I would give it a try. I never thought to make this before! I decided to try Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce from this site.
I made the recipe as written and it was good, but after a few bites, I found it tasted very sugary and too sweet. Please keep in mind there is almost nothing out there too sweet for me!
Today, I decided to reheat the fudge sauce and I added an additional 1/2 cup of cocoa powder. I dare say this is now a perfect consistancy and taste for chocolate fudge.
In my photos below you can compare the original batch which is a lighter, more caramel color. It was also a bit more runny, but not bad. In the second photo you will see the fudge is much darker and the color of what you would expect fudge to be. It is also slightly more thick.
I highly recommend this recipe and the addition of 1/2 cup of cocoa powder.
I can't wait to make more as gifts for the upcoming Christmas season. Have you ever gifted hot fudge to someone before? What kind of jars did you use?
What do you like to drizzle hot fudge on?
