Homemade Dark Chocolate Magic Shell

Homemade Dark Chocolate Magic Shell | Mimi's Fit Foods

Here’s a sweet, little indulgence you may want to add to your recipe box.  It’s made with dark chocolate chips (and we’ve all heard how healthy dark chocolate is, right!?) and coconut oil.  That’s it.  It’s dangerously easy to make and it adds just a little special touch to your frozen treats (you know . . . frozen yogurt or frozen fruit).

When my parents bought Magic Shell when I was a kid, I thought it was the cat’s meow!  I was so fascinated with how it would harden up when poured over my ice cream.  I loved the stuff.  This homemade version does EXACTLY that, but it tastes WAY better.  I also love that I was able to make it with dark chocolate.

Stay tuned . . . I have a couple “healthy” summer treats headed your way where I’ll put this Homemade Dark Chocolate Magic Shell to good use.
