    • 335g dark chocolate chips
    • 160ml coconut oil

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:1min  ›  Ready in:6min 

    1. Combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave in 30-second intervals, mixing well each time, until mixture is smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. It takes about 1 minute of stirring until they fully mix together. Store at room temperature in an air-tight container.


    You can use any oil that has NO flavour or has a flavour that is compatible with chocolate and your ice cream - rapeseed will work ok but the coconut oil makes it a tad crunchier! Add more oil for a thinner, crispier chocolate shell and add less for a thicker harder shell.

    So much better than store bought. I'll use it all the time now. Add a splash of vanilla for a change.  -  20 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    You can make your own version by switching up the kind of chips you use.  -  31 Dec 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
