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.
