When I hear the words Magic Shell, it just brings back memories from my childhood. If you don’t know what magic shell is, it is a smooth chocolate sauce that hardens when topped on something cold. Magic shell is typically used on Sundaes or ice cream, but you can place it in smoothies, on frozen bananas, or anything else you would want chocolate on it. My magic shell recipe only takes 2 ingredients is easily made vegan by using Vegan Chocolate. If you have recipe you would like to see me make, let me know in the comments below.

    That looks really easy. It's been ages since I've had magic shell topping on my ice cream. I'll have to try this soon.
