    Worst chocolate syrup I've ever tried. I usually have a go-to recipe but thought I'd try something different. I followed it exactly and the chocolate didn't stay liquid for more than a few minutes and then solidified. After heating it up in the microwave at 50% power for 20 seconds twice to attempt to make it liquid again it started to over heat and got worse. I wouldn't recommend this recipe to my enemy.
