Very good. I used 2/3 cup milk in place of the water after reading other reviews. Turned out a little thick after it cooled so I stirred in couple TBSP milk to get my desired consistency. 10-18-08: The consistency of the sauce is perfect when I use 1 cup milk in place of the 1 1/4 cups water with out adding extra milk at the end.
Wonderful ! With 5 kids and a husband who eat ice cream almost every night, the cost of chocolate syrup gets up there a bit. I changed it a bit - 1/2 c white corn syrup (thickened it just enough), 1/2 c milk and 1/4 c water, instead of the 1 1/4 c water. It's perfect this way. Just the consistency of Hersheys. Kids say we should "never buy the store stuff again"
This recipe was so easy and it was exactly what I was looking for. I have tried 3 others before this one, and when you put them in the fridge they are too thick (consistency of peanut butter). This one is truly a sauce. I did use milk instead of water and added 2 Tbsp corn syrup to thicken it a bit. I can put this recipe in the fridge and without having to heat it up when I take it out, I can pour it on anything I want. I put the sauce in little jars, and will hand them out at my chocolate tasting party this weekend. It makes a great gift!
After reading the reviews I cut the water down to a cup & simmered it (over low heat so as not to burn) for about 5 minutes. It was still pretty thin but OK. Poured it into a hershey's chocolate syrup bottle I had saved & used it in my grandson's milk. He was happy so I am too. Thansk for the recipe...I don't think hershey's is going to get any more of my money.;o)
This was really easy to put together and tasted good too. I used milk instead of water and spread this over a shortbread crust. I was out of vanilla so I substituted almond extract and had good results. Will use this again. Thanks
This was fantastic. But I did make a few changes. Use very high quality cocoa. The darker the better. Whisk the sugar and cocoa together until no lumps remain in the pot before adding other ingredients. I used 1 cup of skim milk. Stir, using a whisk, the chocolate mixture constantly over medium heat. Once the mixture comes to a boil, stir constantly for 1 minute. The timer on the stove comes in handy for that. Immediately remove from the heat, and stir in 1 tsp of butter until it's melted. Let the chocolate sauce cool completely for several hours, stirring occasionally. It thickens as it cools.
The only reason I gave a star was because it looked like chocolate. I did what I was told but it smelled bitter and tasted soooo bitter! I put on pastries and if I had used something else they would have been perfect. I was very very very disappointed. It didn't even taste like chocolate.:'(
