A nice bowl of ice cream makes a great afternoon snack. And it's even better with a little chocolate on top. And some of us have probably used magic shell on our ice cream in the past.
MomsEveryday.com blogger Alison Bickel has a way to make a homemade version of this tasty ice cream topper.
Here you go...Two ingredients. That’s all it takes, and your kids will think you are a rock star.
There are two versions, depending on what you have in your pantry. One uses coconut oil, the other just old plain butter.
Homemade Magic Shell
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons butter
Place coconut oil/butter in a small bowl along with chocolate chips. Place in microwave for 30 seconds, stir. Be careful as the bowl will get quite hot. Repeat until both are entirely melted, creating a semi-thick sauce. Allow to cool to room temperature. Do not place in the refrigerator...it will harden! Spoon over ice cream and watch as the sauce magically turns into a hardened shell. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
