Homemade Magic Shell

As you know I’m always trying out new things in my kitchen as natural as possible and my kids absolutely love Magic Shell.   The ones you get at the store doesn’t last a long time in my house..but I wanted something more natural than the ones I buy at the store.  So where did I turn to? Of course our friends at Pinterest
Homemade Magic Shell

5 minutes

Yield: About 2 cup

Make your own DIY homemade magic shell with just 2 ingredients! I used Guittard semisweet chocolate chips and Organic Coconut Oil by spectrum.



Stir together chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small pot. Place on stove top on high for 2 minutes or so. Continue stirring in 15 second intervals until all of the chocolate is melted. Remove and let sit until the chocolate reaches room temperature.

Serve with ice cream, or cover and store at room temperature keep in a mason jar or plastic container with cap.  DO not store in a refrigerator,  keep it for up to 1 month.  I made more as it goes fast in my house. My kids love it! Happy kids, happy Mom.

I bought some burlap at Joann‘s last week, and I’ve been wanting to make something with it… So now that October is here I went to Google to find some pictures of a cute pumpkin and I came up with this. I did not have any paint on hand that I wanted to use, so I decided to go to my children’s crayon jar and voila!

BEAT cream, using an electric mixer on medium or blentec on pulse, until soft peaks form, 2 to 4 min. Reduce speed to low and gradually beat in condensed milk until just combined. Mixture should be smooth and fluffy.
