This recipe is the best! In the past 3 months I've tried several different recipes - including master encyclopedia (Alton Brown) and your recipe is so much better! Just use milk instead of water and add sweetened homemade whipped cream flavored with a touch of cinnamon oil. THE BEST PAULA! Thanks! I've printed this one for my kitchen recipe book!

This is amazing. Such rich chocolate taste. Everyone enjoyed it and it kept perfectly in the frig. Added a little peppermint schnapps to the leftovers and it was perfect.

This is the same recipe that Eagle Brand has on its website. I replaced half of the water with milk, still very rich though.

This tasted like chocolate flavored water. It was nasty which surprised me with all the high rated reviews. I followed the recipe exactly and sadly I wasted a lot of ingredients because it made a huge batch of yuckiness.

Paula, I would love anything in the worlld that you cooked. I tend to love the same things i've seen you cook and i love the way you cook it. Any of your sweets and especially seafood. I watched you cook some of the most amazing Crab-cakes one time that I thought i'd die just looking at them.

I have made this numerous times but it wasn't sweet enough. I use 2 cans of cond milk. I also use 1/2 milk & 1/2 water, 3 Cups of Water & 3 cups of milk. We thought it tasted much better this way.
