      My grandkids love this chocolate sauce on their ice cream. Tastes Amazing! Can add more cornflour if a thicker consistency required. Doesn't last long in the fridge.

      Thankyou! Just the recipe I was looking for. Made a great cake topping when I didn't have icing sugar.

      This a good subsititue as a toping on icecream when you don't have cooking chocolate in the house. I added some cream to make it richer.

      It was a great consistency when I first made it but reheating didn't work for me.
