Homemade Chocolate Magic Shell

Homemade Chocolate Magic Shell
I know.

I should have a picture of this magic shell doing it's crackly thing on top of some ice cream. I'm doing a major food blogger fail right now by not giving you all a photo of that. But um...I needed to share this recipe with you now, and as of this moment, I don't have a picture of that. Someday I will. And perhaps then I will update this post and show you. But trust me, this is the real deal. It is chocolatey goodness that hardens into a magical little shell as soon as it comes into contact with the wonderful coolness of your favorite frozen treat.

I just happened to use this for popsicles (recipes to of which will be on Wednesday. Hence why I needed to share this recipe today). You guys are gonna be all in disbelief and think I'm lying, but seriously: homemade magic shell is sort of idiot proof. It's just chocolate and oil. The end.

And if you don't use it all right away-just store it at room temp. Now, in my case, it hardened up again on some chillier days, but no big: I just re-melted it. DUHN DUH DUH DUNNN.

Ta daaa. Magic.

Homemade Chocolate Magic Shell
Makes 1 cup
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (whichever variety you prefer)
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil (or can substitute butter or shortening)
  • In a small-medium, microwave safe, bowl combine chocolate chip and coconut oil.
  • Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave in 15 second increments, removing and stirring between each, until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.
  • Serve (it should become solid when it is put on something cold, if it is taking a bit to harden up, pop the ice cream or popsicle, etc. in the refrigerator for a minute.) or cover and store at room temperature for up to a month (if it solidifies-because the temperature in your home may be too cool-just microwave and stir again until melted, and make sure to let come back to room temperature before using.)
