Besides only a slightly bitter aftertaste (due to the dark chocolate, which I don't mind), fantastic recipe! The instructions lacked one tip that I did myself. The butter was not incorporating, so first I removed it from heat, then used a wisk, in which I wisked it for a few minutes until fully incorporated. The final result was a smooth, rich chocolate glaze reminiscent of fudge. Wonderful on ice cream! Apply to the ice cream at just the right time, while it is slightly cool but not too viscous. Additionally, it's not necessary to add the chocolate and milk separately, just melt the butter and then add the cocolate and the milk, stir with a serving spoon, remove from heat, and then wisk once it's all melted. Fantastic! Read More

This tasted pretty good. Kind of like chocolate pudding. The sauce broke apart when put on c some ice cream but the taste was there. Not sure if I would set out to make this intentionally but in a pinch I would likely use the recipe. I made a half recipe just in case it was not to our liking and I'm glad I did. Read More

I followed the recipe except for using milk chocolate instead of dark, it wasn't quite as thick as I needed it to be but I added a tablespoon of cocoa powder and that worked great. Best chocolate glaze I've ever had. Read More
