Tastes like Magic Shell! Even better than the original! I heated the ingredients in the micro. for 60 seconds on high and stirred until blended. I dished up ice cream in bowls, poured on this sauce and stuck it in the freezer for 5 mins. to speed up the hardening process.


I think I might try using 1/3c milk and 1/3 semi sweet next time. The consistency is more like a ganache than like the crackle shell. It does not get quite as hard, but overall this recipe tastes very good over ice cream and I could see it having many other applications to come in my kitchen.


So easy and fast to make with stuff you already have in the pantry! I was looking for a quick chocolate sauce to go with our vanilla icecream for our dessert tonight and didnt want to run to the store. This was the only recipe on the site that I had the ingrediants for! It was a bit thick as others have said, but it all just depends on what you want to use it for. I did thin ours out just a bit with a tablespoon or so of milk. It's a keeper!
