Hard Shell Chocolate Fun!

Who doesn't love ice cream dipped in chocolate like you get at the Foster Freeze? I love those! I missed them until now. Try this at your next chocolate craving. So easy too! YUMMMMY!


1 1/4 cup  Semi-Sweet chocolate chips (I used Trader Joe's)

   1/2 cup  Organic Coconut oil


1. Place both in a microwave safe bowl and melt for one minute or use the melt button until melted. Let it stand for a couple of minutes then stir until smooth.

2. Surprisingly it will appear runny. Simply pour over ice cream. Otherwise, put in a squeezable bottle that you can microwave for easy application to the ice cream.  When cool store in fridge. Or use immediately.

*To use from fridge, open cap and reheat for 30 seconds. If it isn't runny enough use 15 second intervals after. Pour over ice cream and enjoy. Use a pad on your hand when squeezing the container  the shell mixture...it will be hot.

* Or  if you want to indulge just for yourself, one serving, use about 2-3 tablespoons of chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil at 50%, stir until combined and serve over ice cream of choice. Or don't have coconut oil and still have the craving? Use 4 oz of Chocolate Chips and 3 Tablespoons butter. Make it even better by double dipping.

  1. Oli, chocolate dipped ice cream is one of my all time favorite things. I've always wondered how to make it myself and here you are. And with coconut oil no less!
