Magic Chocolate Shell

You know how you can go to some ice cream places and get your ice cream cone dipped in a nice, chocolaty coating?  Well, now you can do that at home.  The best part?  It only takes two ingredients.

One. Two.
Two ingredients, ten minutes (less if you have/use a microwave) and you have a decadent, chocolate, yummy shell for your ice cream!  Just be warned, it's addicting.  You may find yourself sneaking a bowl of ice cream with chocolate shell in the middle of the day while the kids are napping.  Not that I'm speaking from experience or anything.... :)
Magic Chocolate Shell
Makes about 2 cups


2 cups chocolate chips
1/4 cup coconut oil


1.  Over a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil until completely smooth.  (This could also be done in a microwave.  Microwave in 30 second increments until combined.  Be sure to stir each time.)

2.  Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature.  Once cool, pour over ice cream and enjoy!  Store extra in a jar in your pantry.  Do not store in the refrigerator*.


*If your chocolate shell solidifies in the jar, no biggie.  Just pop it in the microwave or put the jar in a pan of barely simmering water to re-melt it.
