When you try to have a convo with a 10-year-old about Magic Shell, to find out she has NO idea what you’re talking about.  Say whhhattt?  #old

It’s only the worlds greatest ice cream topping

Magic Shell is a dessert product produced by Smucker’s. It is a syrup that quickly hardens into a crispy shell when poured onto a cold surface, which is the origin of the product’s name. The syrup is primarily designed for use on ice cream.

Clearly I had to make shit happen.  I planned to just buy the regular old Smuckers squeeze bottle and let Bay experience the magic.  Then I thought, hmmm.  Google it.  Raise your hand if google is your boo?!?!  What did we ever do without it?  Life must have been so inconvenient.

Anyway…..a few different recipes popped up, some with corn syrup.  Which I DIDN’T have.  Most said it’s a perfect ratio of chocolate chips + coconut oil.  Which I DID have on hand.

We literally whipped up this chocolate magic within 1 minute.  Swear!  Bay was so impressed, that I have to share so you can pass it on to your kiddos too.

Or shit, make it for yourself and hide it from the kids.  That’s what I did with the leftovers (shhhh)!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips (1 bag)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • large wide mouth mason jar

Here’s what you do:

Place chocolate chips + coconut oil in your mason jar.

Heat for 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring after each.  Until chips are almost completely melted.

Stir to combine well and allow to cool.

Dip your goodies right in the jar or pour chocolate topping over your frozen treats and watch the magic happen 🙂

Ps…once the chocolate completely cools, it will become firm.  Pop that shit back in the microwave for about 15 seconds (maybe twice) and voila.  It’s ready for dipping + topping all over again.  

 

You guys, I’ll admit…I had a bowl of vanilla bean slathered with this goodness and it was soooo good.  But, dammnnnn – it’s dangerous.

Next thing I know, I was digging through the pantry and fridge looking for things to dip.  All bad.

Let’s just call it a summer science experiment and call it a day 🙂
