After a mistake making Hokey Pokey....

....so, I put 1/2 stick of butter in a heavy sauce pan with 1/2 cup half and half cream and let it get very hot and steamy. the hokey pokey had all those flavors of chocolate chips on top of it, raspberry bittersweet, shaved bittersweet, milk chocolate with caramel and semi sweet chocolate with white chocolate swirls. broke it up and added to the butter/cream and stirred. let it simmer stirring with a wooden spoon for many minutes until I put it into a quart sized Ball jar, sealed it and put it in the frig. stroke of good fortune, this is a winner for on top of ice cream or over any cake or brownie.

wanted to share in case you ruin your hokey pokey too, it's salvageable or repurposed...

What is Hokey Pokey? I've never heard of it but the ingredients sound like something I should know about!

I wanna know too....I'm a little concerned about this. Does this have it's roots in cannibalism???

"You put your left foot in, .....and shake it all about....
"You put your right arm in.....and shake it all about...

That's what it's all about....
