  • 1/4 cup (1.5oz) chopped semi-sweet, bitter sweet, or milk chocolate high-quality chips are fine
  • 2 teaspoons refined coconut oil


  • In a small, microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate and oil. Microwave in 15-second increments, stirring well after each, until chocolate is smooth and pourable.
  • Pour over ice cream and allow a minute or two for it to harden completely. Serve and enjoy.


Approximate nutritional information is for 2 servings.
Be sure to pour chocolate shell over ice cream in a single layer. If the shell is too thick, it may not crack easily. 
Any leftover chocolate shell can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
