I keep the ingredients for this chocolate sauce on hand so I can make it any time I need an easy dessert. It's very rich and delicious. People like that it forms a crunchy shell over the ice cream...much like a treat from an old-fashioned ice cream parlor.—Brenda Jackson, Garden City, Kansas

Much better than the store bought brands. It makes a lot and it's cheaper. Very yummy!

This is yummy, easy, and quick! I stored the leftover sauce in the fridge and then microwaved before using again. My husband and I enjoyed this sauce several times.
