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!

Thanks! Yep, this is the way to do it! Try adding other mixins too--cookie pieces or peanut butter!

That's all it takes?! So much easier than I expected
