Copycat Hard Chocolate Shell Recipe

Hard chocolate shell. You know the stuff. It magically hardens on your ice cream and takes it from good to great!

While I may sound like an advertisement, I love  ice cream but what I don’t love is paying a lot for stuff that’s probably full of things I don’t even know how to say.

little Indiana keeps it simple. I’ve got a hard chocolate shell recipe that doesn’t just taste like the real thing–it tastes even better! Warm off the stove, there’s just nothing like it. Enjoy this copycat recipe for a hard chocolate shell topping!
