Great chocolate taste although I did substitute the semisweet chips with Ghiradelli double chocolate chips which gave it a deep chocolate flavor. I also cut back the milt to 2 cups for a full batch and next time I may even do less...I like hot fudge pretty thick although the 2 cups did not make it really thin.

This tastes just like the hot fudge sauce I loved as a kid but it wasn't as thick. To thicken it up cut way back on the evaporated milk...I used two-thirds of a cup for half of this recipe and it became much thicker. You can even go with less if you like it the consistency of real fudge!

I thought this was good not the best I've had. (I thought it tasted a bit too much like the semi-sweet chips that are used to make it.) My husaband thought it tasted like "really good hot fudge" which is a huge compliment coming from him he's a chocolate lover so he knows. I just don't know what it needed maybe a dash more salt?? oh and I used a little less than 1/2 the called for evaporated milk I made a full batch and about 1 cup of milk was PLENTY it would have been too thin if I would have used more.

This was very good AND easy to make. I also halved the recipe and only used 2/3 of a cup of evap. milk. Be careful that you bring the sauce to a boil over a med-low heat...it is very easy to burn the chocolate and it gives it a burnt flavour that is NOT good. It takes a long time to get it to boil at this temp but it is worth it!

Absolutely divine! I halved the recipe then cut the milk down to a little less than a cup to make it a little more "fudgy" than runny. We drizzled it over ice cream cake but my husband kept sneaking spoonfuls to eat by itself. So good!

This is the best fudge sauce. It is definitely delicious perfect consistency heaven on ice cream. I think I added a little less evaporated milk. I made half of the suggested recipe and only put in a cup of evaporated milk. So delicious! Easy to make. You will not be disappointed.

Chocolate is chocolate right? Hence the 3 stars. But like another reviewer stated this tasted more like eating melted semi sweet chocolate chips. I think I'll keep looking.
