This did not work for me. It did not get hard. It was very thick. Thicker than a hot fudge. I tried a different and healthier recipe using coconut oil and it worked wonderfully and tasted awesome!
My family loves Magic Shell but I don't get it often, but as easy as this is I will from now on. I used a combo of milk chocolate and semi sweet, and it turned out perfect. Served over homemade french vanilla ice cream. Tastes even better than the real thing, I also made it in the microwave for ease.
I made this for my husband on the fly b/c he is a magic shell-lover and we didn't have any on hand for his ice cream. He likes it even better than the original! Thanks for sharing--it's so easy and very tasty. To make it, I put semi-sweet chocolate chips in a bowl with the chopped butter and zapped it in the microwave on full power for 40 seconds, stirred, and zapped for another 20 seconds and stirred again. That was enough to get it completely melted and smooth.
I'm not going to let my obvious difference of taste affect your good rating on your recipe! :) The recipe DOES harden up like Magic Shell , but there's just too much of a buttery taste for me. And by the reviews so far, I'm definitely in the minority , so just comments from me!! :)
I won't rate this recipe b/c I didn't try it as described, but I *did* try it with the butterscotch chips...I thought I'd give it a whirl as my DH doesn't like chocolate (yes - gasp!) It wasn't successful - it got grainy & lumpy as soon as it started to cool. I think the problem is that the butterscotch chips don't have the same cream-based ingredients. *sigh* It was still tasty, but not like Magic Shell! I thought I'd post in case anyone else was considering trying this with butterscotch chips.
This really works!!!!! I will be making this will all kinds of chocolates- Reese's chips, Andes mints, Dark chili chocolate, ... and the list goes on!!!
This is so easy to do. I melted the chocolate in the microwave with the butter. My son loved it. I will be doing this recipe often. Thanks princess buttercup :) Made for I recommend tag game
Yes it really works. I reheated the rest of it today and again it got hard just like it was suppose to. This is so fast and easy to make, thank you for posting. Made for 2012 Zaar Cookbook Tag game.
Well, it works. It does get hard like Magic Shell. My kids didn't like it as much, though.
