Chocolate Magic Shell
Life is better with …
Chocolate Magic Shell!
Do you remember the Chocolate Sauce that when you would put it on your ice cream it would harden into this really tasty shell? Oh, it was so awesome as a kid.
It’s so dead easy to make and I would dare to say on the healthy side of life too. It only takes a couple of minutes and you are sure to pour it on everything icy cold to watch it magically harden into a chocolaty shell, don’t deny it you know you would.
Go from not bad to ….
INSANELY gorgeous tasting!
I love making this with dark chocolate, but you can also try it with milk or white chocolate as well. Make sure to keep the sauce at room temp, the coconut oil solidifies at 76°F and below, if you do keep it in the refrigerator then you can warm it up in a bowl of hot water. If you are thinking that the chocolate sauce will take on the flavor of the coconut oil, rest assured it doesn’t, there is only 2 Tbls to a cup of chocolate and you won’t taste the coconut at all.
Use it wildly on whatever you want!
I personally adore it over the Coconut Ice Cream, it makes a beautiful treat that taste of a Mounds or Bounty bar!
Just remember to stock up on bags of dark chocolate and a vats of coconut oil and all will be well in the world.
Chocolate Magic Shell
The perfect topping for any Ice Cream, homemade Chocolate Magic Shell.
- 1 cup Dark Chocolate chips
- 2 Tbls Coconut Oil
- In a microwave safe bowl, add the Chocolate and Coconut Oil.
- Place in the microwave and heat on high for 45 seconds. Check and stir if starting to melt. Add 30 seconds more if needed, continue to stir until the chocolate and Coconut oil are completely melted and smooth.
- I keep mine in a plastic squeeze bottle at room temp. The coconut oil will cause the sauce to harden at temperatures below 76°F, hence the "magic" shell.

My husband loves it!!! What brand chocolate chips do you use?
Oh now, that’s a good sign, so glad it’s husband approved! 🙂 Most of the time, I use Ghirardelli dark chocolate, but if I’m making it with kids in mind, I use Hershey’s or Baker’s chocolate.
