Crunchy Chocolate Sauce

No matter what time of year, ice cream toppings are a specialty. Especially when it’s hot in the summer, the coolness of ice cream is a hit. Add some homemade crunchy chocolate sauce as a topping, and you’re all set. This sauce pours well when it’s warm and then hardens as it sits on the ice cream.

After it’s made, you’ll need to store it in the refrigerator and then heat to re-serve. It will keep for months in a sealed container and refrigerated.

I got this recipe from my friend Katie who brought it to an outdoor ice cream and movie party a few weeks ago. She got the original recipe comes from Taste of Home. Find more great recipes at!
