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.
