Ok, I’ll give Smucker’s credit for having the better name, but when it comes to taste and naturalness (did you know that’s an actual word?) I totally win. All you need are two ingredients and like 5 minutes, and you have homemade, chocolate magic shell goodness.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 1 cup chocolate chips, any variety will do
For this particular batch, I’m using milk chocolate, but feel free to use semi sweet or dark chocolate. I’ve never tried it with white chocolate, but I would guess it would work too. Pour your chips into a bowl.
Add the coconut oil.
Microwave for 30 seconds. When you pull it out, it will look like not much is happening,
But if you stir, you’ll see things are actually melting way more than you thought.
After a good stir, it’ll probably need another 30 seconds in the microwave to melt everything completely. Give it another good stir. It might take a minute or so before everything comes together. A silicone spatula is the perfect tool because you can keep scraping the sides, and I seriously love these Mastrad ones because they’re all one piece so there’s no seam to collect germs or anything.
And that’s all there is to it. Pour the chocolaty goodness into a mason jar and just store it in the pantry. It will eventually solidify again, but just nuke it for 7-10 seconds and swirl it around in the jar.
Drizzle it on your ice cream.
And after just a few seconds, it will harden into the perfect, crackable chocolate coating.
Admit it, even as an adult, you still love this stuff.
