Godawgs thanks for the recipe. We're getting a l'il rain! Hooray!
I grew up eating that on toast or biscuits, it was also good on ice cream.

I just called my Aunt and she said they didn't use flour, the recipe was cocoa, sugar and a little milk cooked down to a thick syrup consistency so it hardened a little like fudge once it cooled down. It was a desert for us more than any thing else, I can remember picking strawberries after school and dipping them in the syrup.

Try coconut oil, powdered sugar and cocoa powder.
Homemade hard shell ice cream topping.

It's not the same, this is like a runny fudge that you can top room temperature food and it thickens as it cools vs using frozen food to harden it. I think it came from making fudge when you think about it. I might have to go play in the kitchen!!!!!!
