Magic shell is such a simple, genius concept. It’s essentially chocolate melted with coconut oil and when it’s drizzled over something cold – like ice cream and milkshakes – it firms up into a hard, shell-like consistency – hence the name “magic shell.”
I’ve been using it to top frozen desserts for a while now and wanted to share my favorite technique. Find it below, along with a few ideas for how to use it!
How to Make Magic Shell
- 3/4 cup vegan dark chocolate (finely chopped // I love Trader Joe's 72% cacao Pound Plus Dark Chocolate Bars)
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
Add chopped chocolate and coconut oil to a small mixing bowl and microwave in 30-second increments until fully melted and creamy, stirring occasionally to aid in the melting process. If you don't have or don't use a microwave, melt over a double boiler on the stove top.
*This recipe is not my original concept, but rather inspired by store-bought magic shell.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate.
