How To Make Homemade Magic Shell

via Betty’s Kitchen

In a small to medium microwave-safe bowl, place 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips and 1-ounce coconut oil. Heat in a microwave oven at 50% power for 1 minute. Stir.

Continue to heat for 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until the mixture is melted and smooth.

Remove from the microwave and pour over ice cream or other frozen sweet treats.

Allow it to harden for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Serve. Store leftover sauce in a jar that is tightly sealed with a lid.

The sauce will be fresh at room temperature for up to 1 week.

To use again, reheat the jar (without lid) in the microwave at 50% power until warm.

This is a great-tasting “magic shell” sauce that everyone will love – Enjoy!
