Magic Chocolate Shell {2 ingredients!}

Have you ever had the magic chocolate shell that hardens when you put it on ice cream (and also has 27 mysteriously unpronounceable ingredients)? It is so yummy and is NOT something I think of when I think of “real food.”

When I was browsing on Pinterest one day I came across a magic shell recipe made with 2 ingredients: chocolate chips and coconut oil. Yes, please! I made it for a birthday celebration using my favorite brand of real ice cream. Well, actually I didn’t use the ice cream to make it, but it served as an absolutely delicious chocolate topping for a scoop of vanilla. Whether you’re a chocoholic (like me) and you want to drown your ice cream in your homemade magic shell…

Or maybe you’d just prefer a drizzling?

Either way, it comes together in just minutes so that you can be digging into it in no time flat. It was a big hit here and couldn’t be easier to make! I’m thinking chocolate covered strawberries are next :)

We also enjoy healthier chocolate chip cookies,  applesauce cupcakes with maple buttercream frosting, chocolate honey butter fudge and tasting is believing whole grain brownies for special treats with a healthier twist.
