I made this with 6 ounces of semisweet chocolate, reduced the water to 3 tablespoons and added 2 tablespoons of butter to it. Very yummy.

This recipe tastes more like chocolate pudding than Fudge sauce. Water can be eliminated for a thicker sauce. Good recipe for kids, not for hot fudge sundaes.

This is the best hot fudge sauce I have ever made! I didn't need to add the water. I have made it with both unsweetened and semi-sweet chocolate. Slightly different flavors--both excellent!

A great quick and easy fudge recipe with minimal ingredients. I like to add coffee instead of the water for a great mocha taste. I also let is cool completely before storing in the fridge. It helps it from getting a grainy texture when reheating.

I Made with no water and it was thick, creamy and everyone at my party was astonished it was homemade. The hot fudge brownie sundaes were a hit!

I used more chocolate and kept it over the d.boiler longer for a thicker sauce and left out the water. This was awesome! Made Sunday's for T.G., it was a hit and gone quickly. Thank you so much for the great recipe. Now I known what to do with those cans of s.c. milk :) Yummy!!!!!!!

Great sauce! Not as fudgy as some, but still excellent and easy to make. I don't have a double boiler, so I just rested one pan inside of the other, sort of crooked. Worked just fine. I added only a very little bit of water to mine and it came out the perfect consistency.

I was disappointed in this hot fudge sauce. It was very runny and not very fudgy tasting. I probably wouldn't make it again.
