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.

**OR**

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

  1. 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?

  2. 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?
