Chocolate Nut Crackle Sauce

I cut this recipe out of a magazine YEARS ago.  It's like the Magic Shell sauce that you buy, only BETTER!!  It hardens on ice cream & is SO good.  Of course, if you're making it for kids, you may want to leave out the nuts.  Here's the recipe.

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup medium-fine chopped walnuts, pecans or almonds
1 6 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips

Melt butter or margarine in heavy skillet over moderate heat.  Add nuts & cook, stirring to prevent burning, until light golden brown.  Remove from heat & stir in chocolate pieces until  melted & smooth.  Heat to serve over ice cream (sauce will crackle & become firm). 

To give, put in a jelly jar with instructions to heat the sauce before serving.

Makes 1 1/4 cups.

Serve over  my Vanilla Bean Ice Cream recipe for a scrumptious treat!!!

NOTE:  I re-heat the sauce in the microwave on medium power until melted.

I am sharing this with Foodie Friday & On the Menu Monday at Stonegable & Tea Party Tuesday  & Rock 'n Share Party, Crazy Sweet Tuesday
