Magic shell ice cream topping

Tonight I wanted a special treat for FHE. So I made up some brownies with our powdered eggs, made 'ice cream' with our milk, and then wanted to top it with some chocolatey goodness. At one time I had a copy cat recipe for Hersheys chocolate syrup. It was perfect and so good. But somehow it got lost and I can not seem to find it anywhere. I mourned the loss of the recipe a moment and then remembered a recipe I had tried in 2008 for magic shell ice cream topping. I started searching for it and found it with a little note at the bottom of the page that said, "5/31/08 Ooh la la! Perfect!!!" And perfect it was!

Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping

6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
4 T butter
1/4 C canola oil (you can use vegetable or corn too)

In a double boiler melt the chocolate and butter. Remove from heat and stir in the oil really well. Serve over really cold ice cream and you will have magic shell that sets up hard just like the store bought stuff!
