Cherry Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping

1 6 oz. pkg. cherry chips (or chocolate, mint, butterscotch)
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1/4 c. vegetable oil

* Melt chips and butter in a double boiler. Add oil and mix in well. When dipped into or spooned over ice cream, it will create a hardened shell.

This was my favorite magic shell growing up, and then they just stopped carrying it, I was so happy to find this recipe, I feel like a little kid again. Sometimes its hard to find the cherry chips, I found mine awhile back on clearance at Wal-Mart and bought tons of them.
