Homemade Chocolate Magic Shell


  • Author: Rebecca Neidhart

Description

With only two ingredients, homemade chocolate magic shell is a fun and simple way to dress up your ice cream! Instructions for making it in the Instant Pot are included.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil (not fractionated;see notes)
  • 1 cup (about 5 oz.) dark chocolate, chips or chopped bars

Instructions

Place the coconut oil and dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Use a metal or glass bowl if using a double boiler or instant pot, and a glass bowl if you’re using the microwave.

Double Boiler Method:

Put 1″-2″ of water in the bottom of a pot that’s slightly smaller than the bowl your chocolate and coconut oil is in. Put the water on a burner over medium low heat and allow it to come to a simmer. It should be steaming and bubbling lightly, but not boiling.

Place the bowl of chocolate over the simmering water and allow it to melt completely. Stir it occasionally to help it melt evenly.

Once the chocolate has melted completely, your magic shell is ready to use! Pour it over ice cream and allow it to harden before eating.

Instant Pot Method:

Place 1″-2″ of water in the bottom of your Instant Pot liner (the metal pot that goes inside) and push the saute button and making sure it’s on the high setting. Allow the water to come to a simmer. It should be steaming and bubbling lightly, but not boiling.

Place the bowl of chocolate over the simmering water and allow it to melt completely. Stir it occasionally to help it melt evenly.

Once the chocolate has melted completely, your magic shell is ready to use! Pour it over ice cream and allow it to harden before eating.

Microwave Method:

Place the glass bowl with chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave and heat it for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the chocolate thoroughly. Repeat microwaving at 15 second intervals, stirring after each, until the chocolate has melted completely.

Once the chocolate has melted completely, your magic shell is ready to use! Pour it over ice cream and allow it to harden before eating.
