Chocolate Magic Shell

Chocolate Magic Shell is so incredibly easy to make. Just two ingredients and two minutes and you have a chocolate sauce that hardens on your ice cream!
Prep Time2 minutes
Cook Time2 minutes
Total Time4 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 servings


  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks 72% dark recommended
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil


  • Combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in microwave safe dish. 
  • Microwave for 1 minute on 50% power. Stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds at 50% power. Remove and continue stirring until smooth.
  • Chocolate magic shell will remain liquid for quite some time at room temperature and will harden when drizzled over ice cream.


Recipe tips for perfect results:

  • Not all chocolate chips or chocolate chunks taste the same. My preference is to use a high quality 72% dark chocolate chunk, but you can use milk or semi-sweet chocolate.
  • You can double this recipe, but it might require more heating.
  • If you don't use all of the magic shell and it hardens in the bowl, just warm it up using 30 second increments at 50% power in the microwave and stir well in between.
