ONE STAR. The cream is way too much. The sauce was just too liquidy almost like a thick milky chocolate shake. Will never make it again.

Hi there ! Can this sauce be frozen ? I'm looking to make a large batch of this for Christmas desserts so a sauce that is freezes well would be a great head start ! Many thanks Musical
