"This is a nice "shell" sauce that is easy to make and hardens when put on ice cream."
Serving Size: 1 (46 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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."
"This was very good. I made it with 1/4 olive oil and 1/4 coconut oil. it turned out perfect. Thanks."
"Perfect solution for a quick and easy hard shell. I microwaved everything for 1 minute, stirred it all up and it was ready to go. Leftovers are in the fridge ready for another day."
"This would have to be our favourite 'hard' chocolate topping for ice-cream. Easy to make and stores well in fridge & reheats with no problems in the microwave. The only thing I did different the first time I made this was to use some dark chocolate that I had on hand. Can see this being used a lot over the summer. Thanks for posting :)"
"Tastes good, but doesn't harden like I'd like...still somewhat soft & doesn't have an instant hardness once it hits cold--has to sit on the cold for a while. Will probably return to for the flavor, but won't expect to use it to coat a whole ice cream scoop."
"Wow! I think it's better than Dairy Queen and it's about 100 times better than store-bought. Switch around the chocolate - milk, white, dark - it's fantastic. The kids are crazy for it."
"This is great sauce. Used on frozen bananas today and who knows what else in the future. Thank you!"
"Perfect! Used this on the banana popsicles for my kids, then on Fruit Salad Recipe #576. It's so good, this will be made regularly around here! Thanks for posting!"
"I just made this and it is WONDERFUL! It was so easy, too. It took me less than five minutes prep in the microwave. The perfect summer treat. I will be making this again!"
"update! i've now made this a THOUSAND times and i featured it on my blog for my bastille day celebration. pictures and reference here: http://legallyeating.com/2009/07/14/vive-la-france-but-you-know-in-america/ toadflax, you're theeee best. i haven't even eaten it on ice cream yet, which is one of my favorite things, but it is AMAZING. so chocolaty, just perfect. i've made this twice in two days! love it. thank you!"
"I was looking for something to make a special DGS's treat as they've been sooooo good while I've been babysitting for the last 2 weeks and this was it!! They now think Nanna "ROCKS" in their words. It went together easy and taste much better than Magic Shell - I'll never buy that stuff again when this is so easy. Makes quite a lot, so I can't wait to see how it does when we re-heat it. Thanks Toadflax for posting."
"Oh wow!!! I am a Magic Shell junkie, but rarely buy it because it's on the expensive side. Now I can make it myself!!! I thank you for posting this (my skinny jeans do not...)"
"Easy, Quick, and yum. I used it for frozen banana pops. Excellent."
"Mmmm...I could eat this all by itself! I just made it and I am going to drizzle it on the mini-cheesecakes I made for tonight."
"Used this in conjuction with recipe #205613. Used milk chocolate melts, butter and canola oil. The taste testers would give it ten stars if they could. A keeper, thank you Toadflax."
"The key is to use a good quality chocolate. I used this for my frozen banana popsicles."
"Easy, quick and yummy! Works like a charm. Will definitely use this again and again. Thanks!"
