Keep in a jar in the fridge, and heat in the microwave by the spoonful to pour over ice cream, or cake and ice cream, or whatever!

I have made this twice now. The first time I did exaclty as instructed and it was very tasty. The second time I realized 1/2 way through the recipe that I did not have any evaporated milk in the house. Since I had company and needed the sauce I used cream of coconut in lieu of the evaporated milk. AMAZING! It added a delicous richness to the sauce both in texture and in taste. My guests were floored and I will forver make this recipe substituting cream of coconut for the evaporated milk. The coconut flavor is subtle enough for non-coconut lovers to enjoy.

My husband liked the sauce but I thought it was too thin and I didn't care for the cinnamon in it.

Really good and very easy. I realized I didn't have evaporated milk and substituted 1/2 c. whole milk and it still thickened very nicely and had a great fudgy sweet taste. Stored in fridge and consistency stayed perfect - thick but still pourable.

Awesome... Absolutely great..but I do have one tip... sift your cocoa powder while adding it to prevent clumps in your sauce...but EXCELLENT recipe

Quick and easy to make with ingredients I had on hand. After reading the reviews I sifted the cocoa and my sauce was lump-free. Was on the fence about adding the cinnamon and added 1/2 tsp. My family did not care for the taste of cinnamon and requested I omit it the next time I make the sauce.

Very good! I left out the cinnamon just because I didn't think I would like it. I sifted the cocoa and it came out smooth. It was a little salty and I think that was due to the butter I used was salted. Next time I would cut back on the salt.

WOW! Rich smooth yummy sauce! I'm a choc-a-holic so I used 3 heaping tablespoons of cocoa left out the cinnamon and within minutes had a wonderful chocolate sauce! Easy and had all ingredients on hand - what more could you ask for? Love this stuff! I did NOT sift the cocoa just stirred it with the other dry ingredients as per the recipe and I had absolutely no lumps whatsoever and my sauce came out nice and thick too!

this is a lovely smooth sauce. it is really good with a slice of white cake or over ice cream. I left out the cinnamon but I am sure it would be just as tasty. easy to assemble and keeps a long time in the fridge.served it during the holidays.
