Then the chocolate turned hard and formed a shell? This homemade magic shell recipe is just like that chocolate topping. It hardens practically the instant it touches the ice cream. What’s more, it’s made with all-natural coconut oil and chocolate, so it’s even a bit healthy (coconut oil is reported to have some health benefits). Look for extra virgin coconut oil (it comes in a jar, looks white and is almost solid). Store it in a cool, dark place.
