  1. As someone who grew up eating the original and loving it's delicate milky sweet flavor this was a HUGE disappointment!! Too cloyingly sweet. It didn't harden like gold brick eith.
  2. this is yummy! I made it once with milk chocolate once with semi sweet and then a combo...all times it came out thick and creamy and decadent! I think i will try white chocolate or butterscotch chips next.
  3. This would have been 5 stars if I didn't add the nuts. They overpowered the chocolate sauce. I did only 1/2 recipe and got about 4 servings so unless you eat a lot of topping on ice-cream it is actually double the servings suggested.

  4. If I could give this more than five stars I would. This is DANGEROUS. Everyone loved this. I did take Becky's suggestion and added 1 tsp. of instant espresso powder and it was an excellent addition. Either way this one's a keeper.

  8. WOW! This is GREAT! The only thing I changed was adding about 1 tsp. of instant espresso powder as the chocolate was melting - it just deepens the chocolate flavor and does not add a coffee flavor. Also next time I will toast the pecans before adding them to the chocolate mixture. MMMMMMM!!!
  9. My husband said "definitely a 5!" The ingredients are so simple but the result is rich and chocolatey and addictive. I had never thought about mixing the nuts into the sauce--DUH--great idea! I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of evap milk and added 1 tsp vanilla. The sauce doesn't harden like a crackle topping--it firms - Read more ...
