Chocolate Shell Sauce (for Ice Cream)

heard on NPR and modified

6 oz. Melted good quality chocolate

(I use Ghiradelli 60% cocoa)

½ c. + 1 T. coconut oil

1 t. vanilla or ½ t. orange or mint flavoring

Stir oil into melted chocolate. Stir in flavoring. Pour into covered glass jar. Store at room temperature.

This sauce can be stored at room temperature for a week or more. It is liquid at room temperature. It hardens when spooned onto the ice cream.
