Homemade Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping

Disclaimer: I am not a big ice-creamer. I like it, but I don’t love it. Ice cream has never sung me a siren song. Instead it hums a tuneless little ditty under it’s frosty breath.
do-do-do-dee-do
Easy to ignore.
That is until I add a delightfully yummy chocolate shell:


Then I’ll go back for seconds. Or thirds…

Two ingredients and no* dishes to wash. It really is magic.

Homemade Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Liquid at room temperature. Solid on ice cream. Easy to make and no mess. Make it and feel like a kitchen witch. Magic.
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups chocolate, cut from a block or use chips - I use half dark, half milk
  • 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients into a pint sized mason jar.
  2. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time until melted.
  3. Stir/whisk with a fork until smooth and well blended.
  4. Pour over ice cream. Allow a minute or so to harden.
  5. Cap leftover Magic Shell. Lick your fork. Dishes are done.
Notes
Store at room temperature. If sauce hardens, just microwave for a few seconds until pourable.

*Heidi does not actually advocate licking your dishes clean, but she won’t judge you if you do.
