READY IN: 46mins

Just like the real thing, don't just use this for ice cream, drizzle it on top of frozen desserts--- I would strongly suggest to only use margarine for this, I have made it with butter in the past and the butter overpowers the flavor ;-)

This really does work! I used butter because margarine is nothing but junk. Did you know that margarine never spoils and flys won't even land on it? I don't buy margarine. I also used coconut oil instead because my doctor is trying to get me to incorporate it into my diet. If she knew I used it in chocolate sauce for ice cream she would lose her mind. HaHaHa. But it did work. I just reheated it tonight and it still was great.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 23 cup peanut butter chips (semi heaping, or use semi-sweet chocolate chips or use half of each) or 23 cup chocolate chips (semi heaping, or use semi-sweet chocolate chips or use half of each)
  • 2 tablespoons stick margarine
  • 3 teaspoons vegetable oil or 3 teaspoons canola oil


  1. Place all ingredients into a microwave-safe bowl (I use my 2-cup pyrex measuring cup for this).
  2. Microwave on high for about 45 seconds; remove and stir until blended and smooth.
  3. Let sit for about 1 minute before using on ice cream or frozen pies (it's that easy lol!).
  4. This will harden when combined with frozen ingredients.
