Total Time:
8 hrs 30 mins
3 ice cream bars


  • 1 pint chocolate ice cream

  • 3 jumbo craft sticks

Instant Chocolate Hard Shell:

  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

  • cup coconut oil


  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Freeze bars until set, at least 15 minutes.
