• Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping

    Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping is a delicious chocolate sauce that "magically" hardens the second it hits the ice cream. Here are 2 different tried and true ways of making this magical deliciousness!
    Here are the 2 ways we've made our own Copycat "Magic" shell ice cream topping:

    1 pkg (6oz) chocolate chips
    1/2 stick butter or margarine
    1/4 cup Mazola oil (Do not substitute any other kind!)

    In a double boiler melt chips and butter together. When melted add oil. Pour over ice cream and it will harden.


    For an even Quicker Magic Shell
    1 c. Chocolate Chips
    3/4 c. Coconut Oil

    Melt together in a glass bowl in the microwave, 20 seconds at a time, stirring in between, just until it's melted and fully incorporated.

    Pour while warm over ice cream and it will harden instantly.

    You can easily customize these by adding a touch of flavored extract, such as cherry, rum, pineapple, etc

    What's Your Favorite Ice Cream topping?

      The recipe says to only use Mazola oil. Mazola has a variety of oils from vegetable to corn to canola. Which kind should I use?

      Thanks for this magic shell recipe. I just made it using some mint chocolate chips I got on sale at Christmas and stored in the freezer. It was quick to make and hardened up nicely when put on the ice cream. I had both chocolate and vanilla ice cream, and opted for the chocolate. Dangerously good!
      Had about half left, wonder about how to store it?
