Homemade “Healthy” Magic Shell Chocolate Ice Cream Topping

September 17, 2012

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!

Best Homemade Stain-Remover – Removes Stains Better & Cheaper!

Best Homemade Stain Remover

You guys, this is the best stain remover around.  Two simple ingredients and you probably already have them!
(you don’t need gloves to use, it won’t dry your hands out and it’s SAFE)

I am totally in love with this super simple and amazing stain remover. 

I was so skeptical that I bought the ingredients two weeks ago and kept washing and drying the same shirts with the same stains.

Not sure where the inspiration came from, but I was finally up for the challenge.  Here are my results from today:

• The first stain I tried it on was on my 3 yr old’s shirt.  This stain is over 6 months old.  Not sure what it was, but it would not budge.  I just pulled it out of the dryer and IT IS GONE! (the stain is 🙂  The area that was stained is the same color as the rest of the shirt (a cream color).

• The second stain was on my 1 yr old’s shirt collar.  He was self feeding (bad idea for keeping shirt clean).  This was much simpler and only took about 5 seconds to remove.  But I was happy because it was a brand new shirt *sigh*

• The third stain was a greasy ketchup like spot on a shirt that was white and the stain bugged me so much I never let my kid wear it again…so there it hung in the closet.  And, yes he stained it upon the first wearing.  I didn’t notice it until it came out of the dryer.  Now the stain is gone – perfectly gone.

Want to know how to remove pit stains, pet stains, and juice stains?

You won’t believe it when I tell you…

Original Blue Dawn Dish Soap and Hydrogen Peroxide (3% solution – the regular stuff from the store)

Yep, you use one part soap and two parts peroxide. Mix up a small amount and keep in a dark container.

I thought maybe it was best to wet the shirts before treating.  Then I poured the “stain-remover” on the area.
Used and e-cloth to gently scrub the area.  And threw in the wash. Two of the three stains were gone before the washer machine even started.  The 3rd stain was 90% gone.  The rest disappeared in the wash.  (btw – e-cloths are amazing to use on any and everything. There are a few spots in my carpet that I am excited to try this combo on!
OH! And I have a friend that used an e-cloth with just water and removed juice from her kid’s carpet – no lie)

I was so skeptical that I did not take any before and after pictures.

On the next laundry day, I will.
