This super-easy homemade ice cream topping doesn’t harden quite as fast as that magical store-bought stuff, but it packs a lot more chocolate flavor. Plus, it’s totally customizable with different flavors of chips! Store it in the pantry to zap in the microwave whenever you want to crack your spoon into something delicious.
Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream Shell – or any Flavor
1 11 – 12 – ounce package semisweet or bittersweet chocolate pieces, butterscotch pieces, white baking pieces, peanut butter pieces, cinnamon pieces, or cherry pieces (or mix and match, cherry chocolate maybe)
1/4 cup coconut oil or vegetable oil
Place ingredients in a medium microwave-safe bowl; stir. Cook on 50% power (medium) for 1 minute; stir. Continue to cook at 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until almost melted. Remove and stir until completely melted. Pour over ice cream in dishes. Allow to harden 30 to 60 seconds.
Store remaining mixture in a glass jar at room temperature up to 1 week. If mixture hardens, uncover and reheat in the microwave on 50% power (medium) about 40 seconds or until just softened but not war; stir.
