    Easy to make and delicious. Very chocolatey and not too sweet. I put all the ingredients together in a glass bowl and microwaved it 15 seconds, stirred, then microwaved another 15 seconds, then stirred until blended and smooth. Perfect! (1000 watt microwave, your mileage may vary)  -  09 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Perfect to top my chocolate cake--thick, glossy and chocolatey. This couldn't be easier or quicker. Just melt, pour and spread! Hubby's only criticism, and I have to agree, is that there wasn't nearly enough of it on the cake. Unless you're just using this to drizzle over the cake, you MUST double this!  -  24 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was excellent! I had to substitute honey for the corn syrup, and it turned out great. Made an excellent topping for eclairs. Held up well in the fridge. Great consistency, super quick, and easy!  -  15 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
