    Sauce is fairly runny. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used Hershey's special dark cocoa. Could this be why?

    Very easy and awesome! Make at least a double batch if you want to have enough to give away! This was a huge hit at our house, reminded me of the fudge sauce my mother used to make! A+++!!!
