Homemade Magic Shell
Hard Shell Ice Cream topping is like magic! Our family loves Magic Shell ice cream topping. You know that wonderful stuff that goes on liquid and then immediately hardens to make a hard yummy chocolate shell. It is is so amazing! Making your own magic shell ice cream topping is unbelievably easy— and it tastes pretty close to the real Magic Shell! My family even thought it tasted like the dipped cones at Dairy Queen. You might even want to try this fun twist, Butterscotch Magic Shell. Scroll all the way to the bottom for more ideas for delicious homemade ice cream toppings.
Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping Recipe
1 1/4 Cups Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil (measured when solid)
Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave about 1 minute (depending on your microwave). Allow to sit a few minutes to allow the heat of the oil to melt the chocolate chips and then stir until smooth. It will be runny.
Pour into a bottle. We used a recycled pickle relish bottle. A glass bottle works well too, especially since it will be heated in the microwave.
Store in the refrigerator. To serve, heat bottle in microwave (open cap) for 30 seconds until liquid. Slightly shake and continue heating at 15 second intervals if not liquid after the first 30 seconds. Pour over your favorite ice cream and in a few seconds you will see magic!
- You can substitute butter for the coconut oil, however the coconut oil gives the more ‘real’ Magic Shell flavor.
- You can use milk chocolate chips, but everyone we served preferred the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
- This homemade magic shell is great to keep on hand for a last minute dessert for unexpected guests.
