  • Remove the lid from ice cream container. Working quickly, cut the container off the ice cream and turn ice cream on its side on a work surface. Insert craft sticks into the side of the ice cream, evenly spacing them. Cut the ice cream between the sticks, creating 3 bars.

  • Arrange ice cream bars in the prepared baking sheet; freeze until completely solid, 8 hours to overnight.

  • Combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave in 30-second intervals, mixing well each time, until chocolate hard shell mixture is smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Hold 1 ice cream bar over a separate measuring cup and pour chocolate hard shell mixture over bar to cover completely. Let chocolate dry for a few seconds and pour chocolate hard shell mixture over bar again, creating a thick shell. Place bar back in the waxed paper. Repeat with remaining bars and chocolate hard shell mixture.

  • Freeze bars until set, at least 15 minutes.

Delicious. I made mine with white chocolate chips and added Heath Toffee bits to the mixture before dunking frozen ice cream in it. I took a quart of ice cream and put it in disposable cups which I froze for hours cut the cup away inserted sticks cut the ice cream into bars then froze it again. I let the chocolate mixture cool for up to 30 min before coating the ice cream so the heat wouldn't melt the ice cream and the shell became solid within a minute and it's thick enough when it's cool to where only one coating is needed. Freeze again after dipping. Soooo good! Read More
