Homemade “Healthy” Magic Shell Chocolate Ice Cream Topping

Simple Homemade Healthy Magic Shell Chocolate Topping!!!

Do you LOVE the crunch chocolate magic shell topping that you get at the ice cream shop?

Who knew making this chocolate topping would only take seconds?  Unbelievable!

And… it tastes A.Maz.Ing.

All you need is:
1 1/4 Cups Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil (measured when solid)
You can melt them together in the microwave – but I’m against using the microwave, so I put it in a glass bowl and put the bowl in water in a pan on the stove.  Kinda double boiler style.  Once it gets hot, it all melts together.

Simply pour over your ice cream and it hardens after a couple seconds.

Store the remainder in a pint jar.  Reheat it before each use.
It is definitely more on the healthy side if you use dark chocolate chips.  Coconut oil is really good for your body.  Here are some benefits of coconut oil.
You can experiment with butterscotch and peanut butter chips for a different flavor!

    So, do you only make what you need at that moment, or do you reheat it as needed, to make it soft again? Thanks!

      I make a jar full and reheat gently when I ready to use it.

    Thanks so much for this recipe! We tried it and my kids and I loved it. So much better than the chemical-laden original “magic shell”.
