Introduction: Homemade Chocolate Shell Ice Cream Topping!

Homemade Chocolate Shell Ice Cream Topping!

Just like Magic Shell without the list of ingredients!

I just bought an itty-bitty bottle of magic shell...I just wanted some.
It was expensive for just a tiny bit of topping. I knew there was a better way.


Step 1: Ingredients:

Only 2 ingredients:
2 TBSP Coconut oil

1 CUP Chocolate chips!

I used dark chocolate because its my fav.

Just add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to a glass jar or double boiler.
Add the chocolate chips. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir and microwave again.

Or use a double boiler until melted together.

It stores great in a jar...perfect for later.
If it rehardens, just quickly heat it up.

Step 2: Enjoy!

Pour on ice cream and wait just a few minutes for that
Perfect crunchy hard shell!

It doesn't have an overbearing coconut taste!

My daughter, who is not a fan of coconut, loved it!

Also...doesn't taste like eating shortening!

Super good and cost effective!

Perfect for Summer ice cream socials!

Such a good and HEALTHY idea. Check out the book "The Coconut Oil Miracle" by Bruce Fife for more info on coconut oil benefits :) Dark chocolate has many good benefits too...especially raw chocolate.

Yes, I love that too! I am so good with food that is higher in fat as long as there isn't a huge list of unknowns in there as well! :)
