How to Make Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping


  1. 2 cups chocolate chips (any kind: milk, semisweet, or even white)
    1/4 cup coconut oil


Combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals until the chocolate chips have melted. Stir the mixture together and pour it over ice cream.

If you want to save any remaining topping for later, place it in the fridge and microwave again before using.
