Hard Chocolate Coating

Hard Chocolate Coating

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.
