This was good, but I prefer the recipe from my Betty Crocker cookbook over this. As I remember, the only difference is using a can of evaporated milk (not the condensed) and 1/2 cup sugar. I think I may have over-cooked this, because it turned pretty hard upon hitting my ice cream. I would suggest only cooking it until it incorporates together fully. Five minutes may be too long.

Not as good as cooking a sugar based sauce. Consistancy more like pudding. Using chocolate chips eliminates the use of premium chocolate. On the plus, it's very easy to prepare and quick and better than most brought. Wegman's is much better, but homemade cooked with sugar and really good unsweetened chocolate is best.

I wanted to drizzle fudge sauce on a cake that I was making and came across this recipe. It was very easy to make and came out great. Everyone commented that the fudge tasted good. I have extra left over and can't wait to try it warmed of course, over some ice cream.

Good! Very thick and rich. When it cools in the fridge over night, it is almost like pudding! I kept sneaking spoonfulls of it cold. Makes the best brownie sundaes ever. Will definitely make again.

This is an excellent recipe. Works best in the microwave but keep an eye on it because it will easily boil over. Like any candy recipe it is very hot and because it is thick and sticks to you, don't come into contact with it when it is boiling. NOT FOR KIDS TO MAKE UNLESS WELL SUPERVISED. NOTE: A little black walnut flavoring makes all the difference in the world if you want true hot-fudge flavor. Makes excellent gifts.

Yummy, and I even used the fat free Eagle Brand Sweetened condensed milk instead of the regular! I did add a handful more of the chocolate chips since my husband thought it needed to be a little more chocolatety. We won't buy store bought anymore now that we can make this right at home.

I tried this recipe last night. My husband who doesn't eat fudge sauces normally, tried it and loved it. the only thing I changed was the water. I used milk in place of it. The next time I'll decrease the vanilla by half and see how that does, since I thought it was to much vanilla taste.

This is a very simple recipie with very good results. I served it over pannacotta. I put what was left in the fridge and it was like pudding, as someone else mentioned!
