Two-Ingredient Magic Shell


  • 160 g (2 small bars) good quality chocolate
  • 100 g coconut oil


  1. Break your chocolate into pieces - I like to do this with my hands rather than a knife to avoid wasted chocolate shards - and add them to a microwave-safe container with your coconut oil.

  2. Microwave for 30-second intervals until your chocolate and oil have melted together. Stir well to ensure that everything is smooth, and let the mixture cool slightly before using; if it's super-hot, the shell will partially melt your ice cream. But some people are into that sort of thing.

  3. Pour magic shell over a generous scoop of your favorite ice cream.

  4. Wait. Be patient! Don't touch your spoon until the shell has hardened - it won't take more than a minute.

  5. Dig in. Crack the shell. Eat every last bite. Preferably near a fan.
