2-Ingredient Chocolate Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping

If your family loves Magic Shell toppings - that go on liquid and harden within seconds - they're going to love this very simple recipe. 

It sort of tastes like the hard coating that ice cream cones are sometimes dipped in. And is pretty close to the 'real  thing'. 

Try other flavors as well...

Butterscotch or Peanut Butter would be great. 

How can you beat 2 ingredients???

Enjoy - You're welcome! 


1-1/4 c. chocolate (or butterscotch or peanut butter) chips
1/2 c. (solid) coconut oil (from a jar)

In a microwave safe (glass) bowl, heat chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave for about a minute.  Stir a bit, then let stand a minute or two while it melts together, then stir until smooth.  It will be runny, but hardens when poured over ice cream.  

If you want to add sprinkles, you have to be quick so they adhere before the chocolate sets up. 

Store any leftovers covered in the fridge; reheat, in increments of 20 seconds, when ready to serve. 

Keep cool!!

  1. Good morning, Marsha! I’ve made a similar version for years, but with butter, and nuts. I’ll try this version with coconut oil. I’ll bet it gives it a delicious flavor! The kids would love making this.

  2. Yes ma'm...this would be a fun and simple recipe for your grands to make. And how fun to watch it harden on the ice cream. Thanks much for stopping by! XO
