Magic Shell has been one of my favorite ice cream toppings since I was a little girl. I was so fascinated watching it go from one of most runny chocolate sauces I had ever seen to a hard beautifully smooth shell.
What is not to love about it?!
Who knew that this glorious topping was a simple TWO ingredients?! Not me, but now I am SO glad I do!
I found this recipe at The Comfort of Cooking and now have not been able to part with it. It is amazing and tastes and acts just like the Magic Shell you can buy at the store, only now you know exactly what is going into it and its made in the comfort of your own home.
It is ridiculously simple and tastes great! My kids get the biggest kick out of watching it harden up and cutting through the crisp smooth shell.
Whatever you do, DO NOT put store this in the fridge. What does this stuff do when cold… shell up. That’s right. It will never be the same.
This is stored at room temperature in an airtight container, like a mason jar or something of the like :)
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips, or semi-sweet
- ¼ cup coconut oil, I used the solid kind
- Combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a medium microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring in between each increment until chocolate chips are melted and stirred smooth.
- Pour and drizzle over ice cream. Store remaining left overs in an air tight container at ROOM TEMPERATURE :)
