This sauce tasted great but if I make it again I will try it with more evaporated milk to make it thinner. The consistency was very thick, and when put on ice cream took awhile to turn into a "magic shell". A thinner consistency would make a much tastier and crunchy shell.

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.
