Magic Shell Chocolate Sauce

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Sandra Silver

From The Really Good Food Cook Book. This klondike-like coating sauce for ice cream keeps for months in the refrigerator. I have it on hand at all times. Everyone, I mean everyone, will love it!

Made this last night and couldn't be better pleased. I used a good quality margarine instead of butter and only half the amount (tried to make it from memory) still turned out great. My husband said it was better than the store bought and I agree. Thank you so much!
