Our family loves fudgy, shell like ice cream toppings. Sure you can buy it in the store, but it’s so easy to make homemade Magic Shell right in your own kitchen!

Just add your chocolate chips and coconut oil (solid) to a microwave safe bowl and heat in 20-30 second bursts.

Be sure to stir after each heating, it shouldn’t really take longer than about 60 seconds. If too thick, add an additional tablespoon of coconut oil. Heat and stir until completely smooth.

Stir in vanilla bean paste and salt, stir to combine.
