Coat your favorite ice cream cone in a crackly layer of chocolate with this simple recipe.



  1. Melt the chocolate, shortening, vanilla and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula, until smooth, about 4 minutes. Pour the melted chocolate mixture into a small bowl. Pour over ice cream and let harden, or use as a coating for snacks like fruit or pretzels.
