Why pay the high prices at the grocery store when you can make your own hardening chocolate ice cream topping at home. It only takes a few minutes, with ingredients that you already have on hand. A nice little treat for those hot summer nights. This amount made enough to top 4 ice creams for my family, with a wee bit left over. If you do not use it all right away, you can store it in a microwave safe container and carefully reheat it another time.
4 ounces chocolate chips
3 Tbsp butter
1. Melt chocolate chips and butter together (over low heat or in a microwave at 30 second intervals).
3. When ready to serve, pour over ice cream.
