Hard Chocolate Coating

Cuisinart original

This is perfect for topping an ice cream sundae or cone.
There are two different ways to assemble an ice cream sundae when using the Hard Chocolate Coating: either pouring directly onto the ice cream and then sprinkling other toppings over the chocolate before it fully hardens; or start with the other toppings (toasted nuts, cookies, caramel sauce) and then finish with the Hard Chocolate Coating so it truly covers the ice cream and all other toppings.

1. Put the chips and oil into a small microwave-safe bowl
or glass liquid measuring cup. Microwave on 40%
power for 3 minutes and 30 seconds, and then stir
very well. If there are still solid pieces, return to the
oven and microwave, again on 40% power, for additional 20 second increments.
2. Allow to cool slightly, until room temperature but
still pourable (this could take about 15 to 20 minutes),
and then pour over an ice cream sundae or filled ice
cream cone.
3. Store leftover Hard Chocolate Coating in an airtight
container for up to 2 weeks. Microwave on 40% power
to bring back to a sauce consistency prior to using.
