You had me at fudge….and then you went and made it all easy. Thanks, now I’ll never get my clothes to fit me.
Ok, help please! Just made this for our Halloween party and followed the directions to perfection and I got grainy, speckled very runny chocolate sauce. In fact I stirred for so long, it also tastes like cooked milk, too. I must have stirred over medium for a goooood 15-20 minutes because my chocolate would never go from grainy to smooth. Did you use cocoa powder or unsweetened chocolate bar? So disappointed:(
Sorry Katherine, I know how frustrating it is for a recipe not to work. I definitely used unsweetened chocolate, and that photo you see really is those four ingredients in sauce form. If you didn’t throw it away, heat up the sauce again. I promise as soon as the chocolate melts the sauce is smooth. Also want to confirm that you’re using sweetened condensed and not evaporated milk. Try whisking maybe? Keep me posted and other than the sauce, I hope you had a fun party!
I did use condensed milk. I used a Starbucks Via Instant Coffee packet and I wonder if that’s what messed up the chemistry?? I didn’t throw it away because it was good, it was just runny and speckled. I’ll try reheating and test it again. From the picture it looks rather thick, is that accurate or does it tend to be runny? Do you always add 3/4 c. water?
