Remember Magic Shell, that thin chocolate sauce that you pour over ice cream? It “magically” hardens in a matter of seconds into a waxy layer of hard chocolate. It’s junk food, and we love it. We don’t love the trans-fats and mysterious ingredients, though, so it’s a good thing you can easily make it yourself…

Jocelyn at Brownie Points explains how just melted chocolate and coconut oil together make Magic Shell, DIY-version. She also gives tips for adjusting the texture and flavor.

Go read! And make your own batch for all that homemade ice cream you know you want to make.
