  • If you are making a larger batch for storage, keep in a squeezable plastic bottle. I store mine at room temp and it remains liquid, but if you wont be finishing it quickly, store in the fridge and place in a bowl of warm water to bring back to liquid form before using)
  • I love milk chocolate for this recipe although dark chocolate works well as well.
  • You can also use chocolate chips, semi sweet or dark. Use your favorite chocolate.
  • This  topping works for any iced desserts, like frozen bananas or Iced cakes. The dessert must be chilled in order for the topping to be poured over and solidify. Also make sure the topping is runny before each use. Heat to liquify if it has hardened in cold climate.
