Ice Cream Topping

I know some people must think I'm nuts, posting about ice-cream on a day like today (especially those of you who live in my area). I am a big fan of ice-cream but sometimes plain just isn't good enough.

There are many toppings on the market, but one of my family's favorites is a home-made hardshell. It is very simple to make, and stores well. (It is not recommended for anyone with nut allergies as peanut butter is the main ingredient.)

You will need:

1 cup of peanut butter (smooth or crunchy - this is strictly personal preference)
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Colored sprinkles (optional)


  1. Place the peanut butter in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 1 minute. 
  2. Mix well, increasing the time if it isn't heated through and almost bubbly. (Keep in mind microwave ovens vary in temperature, so this is strictly a guideline.)
  3. When heated through add the chocolate chips and mix well until they are melted.
  4. Drizzle over ice-cream and enjoy! Sprinkles may be added on top before it hardens as well.
Note: This stores well; just place in a container with a tight fitting lid and keep it in the pantry. Chances are it won't last long enough to even get to the pantry. It can be reheated in the microwave if it has actually lasted long enough to harden.

Have a great day!
