Instant Chocolate Hard Shell

Rated as 4.61 out of 5 Stars
11

"Two ingredients and less than 5 minutes to a delicious chocolate candy shell for ice cream. After trying recipe after recipe that turned out either rock hard or thick gummy hard shells - I thought to read the ingredient list on a bottle of the store stuff and came up with this! You can use any oil that has NO flavor or has a flavor compatible with chocolate and your ice cream - canola or soybean work ok here, but the coconut oil sends the flavor over the top and makes it a tad crunchier! Drizzle on top of your favorite ice cream!"

YUM, I tried a peanut butter version of this from Pinterest and misplaced the recipe. I had to try this one when I found it. I made 1/4 of the recipe or about 4 servings. So, the full recipe is ...

Shell was not very hard, and solidifies too slowly. Still better than buying it from the grocery store though.

Worked awesome!!! I put it in an old ketchup/mustard bottle and it comes out perfectly every time!

You can make your own version by switching up the kind of chips you use.

A dream come true! Thank you so much for submitting this amazing recipe. Magic Shell was a childhood favorite of mine. I had bought some a couple years ago and it was so difficult to get out of ...

I love this recipe!!! I was making a experiment with cookies and I wanted a chocolate coating. I tried melting chocolate and failed miserably. It tasted really burnt something. So I tried this r...

really works! we melt the oil and chips over a double broiler. add to ice cream and voila, instant hard choco shell. so fun!

just made this to go over ice cream and it was great. I don't have a liquid measuring cup but I used 2.6 oz of the oil and it was perfect! ! put the rest in a mason jar for next time

The first time I did this it was to top cherry flavoured ocing so I added a some marachino cherry juice. The next time I did it as directed. It was wonderful both ways.

AMaazing! I used oil grapeseed oil and it turned out better than the store bought. My 8 year old granddaughter loved it! Thanks! :-)
