ice cream magic shell recipe
This two-ingredient magic shell truly is magic! Pour over ice cream and watch as it instantly forms a light shell of chocolate around your favorite ice cream. Store leftover magic shell in an airtight container at room temperature for several weeks. To serve, warm gently in the microwave and stir until liquified. Let cool until just warm before using.


  •  2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  •  1/4 cup refined coconut oil


Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in short intervals until chocolate starts to melt. Sit until chocolate is fully melted. Let cool until barely warm before using.

Transfer unused magic shell to an airtight container and store at room temperature. Rewarm and cool slightly before using.
