Homemade Chocolate Sauce / Hershey's Chocolate Syrup (Sauce) / Icecream with Chocolate Sauce



Frankly speaking i am not a big fan of hershey's chocolate syrup. Somehow i don't like the overly sweet sauce along with the sweet icecreams. But many of my friends, even my sister drink that stuff straight from the bottle. It is seriously addictive and it is one of the top searched list in google. So i decided to make a homemade one. And i have to warn you onething. This doesn't taste exactly like the hershey's, but in my opinion it taste way better than that.
