This is a nice "shell" sauce that is easy to make and hardens when put on ice cream.

I worked at a Dariy Queen for over 12 years. If you want to make the Butterscotch Dip just use Butterscotch chips instead of Chocolate. And for the Cherry Dip .. use white chocolate chips, cherry flavoring, and a few drops of red coloring. I have been making this at home for years. I let the kids help make ice cream bars on a stick (DILLY BARS) , freeze them for a few hours. THen let the kids dip them. ALWAYS a huge hit at summer birthday parties.Thank You. so Yummy!

This is amazing with Dark Chocolate chips as well. For those that do not like all the sugar in milk chocolate.

Amazing flavour! I used a soft margarine as that is what I had on hand & it still hardened up - not quite to the crackle stage but still a nice solid topping.
