Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream Shell Topping

Wow. This is easy. And yummy. 2 ingredients! We were out of Magic Shell for our ice cream tonight, and the kids said please really nicely. We've had a jar of coconut oil in the pantry for a while (hint: it also makes amazing homemade lip balm), so I made homemade chocolate shell topping. It took less than 5 minutes, folks.

While we ate our dessert, the kids provided lots of suggestions for alternative varieties. Lets see, in the pantry we have peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, peppermint chips, white chocolate chips...

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil

  1. Microwave chocolate chips on 50% power in 30 second increments until melted.
  2. Stir in coconut oil (it starts solid but will melt immediately upon hitting the warm chocolate).
  3. Spoon over ice cream and enjoy.
