    WOW WOW!!!!! This is a fantastic recipe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We planned vanilla ice cream for dessert – I looked in shops for chocolate sauce/syrup – besides being ridiculous expensive, I couldn’t find any (except for the Ice Cap). Thought I’ll try this recipe – I only used 1/2 cup of sugar – it is really great!!!!
