When you are a kid, everything is new and magical! Your dad can pull a nickel out of your ear, the tooth fairy brings you a dollar when you lose a tooth, and Santa can magically fit down the chimney with a bag full of goodies.
One of those magical memories that I can remember clearly was that first trip to Dairy Queen when you ordered that chocolate dipped cone. You watch them dip that cone into a hot tub of chocolate, and within seconds it quits dripping and turns hard. How did they do that? The magic continued when mom bought a bottle of Magic Shell for the ice cream at home. It left you trying to figure it out over and over again.
Well, now you can make magic shell in the comfort of your home with no secret potions or spells. Just Chocolate and coconut oil. Seriously folks…that is it! I was just as shocked as you. This stuff stays runny until you pour it on your ice cream and voila…just like magic, it makes that hard chocolaty shell.
Homemade magic chocolate shell
Gather a bag of your favorite chocolate chips. I used Ghirardelli semi-sweet because they are dairy free…and good! Plus grab your coconut oil. I honestly didn’t keep this in the house until recently, but it is amazing for so many things and much healthier alternative to other oils.
In a microwave safe bowl place 8 oz of chocolate chips ( about 3/4 of a bag) and 2 TBSP of Coconut oil.
Microwave on high for 30 seconds and then stir. Return to microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir well, and it should look like the chocolate above.
Pour over ice cream or dip a cone and you will be in homemade magic chocolate shell heaven in no time! 🙂
