If I had to choose only one dessert to eat for the rest of my life there is no doubt what it would be….ice cream…homemade ice cream to be specific.  Growing up we made homemade ice cream every now and then but when I married my husband I quickly learned how very much his family Loves  their homemade ice cream!  Homemade ice cream is by far the dessert of choice in his family, especially now that we have all discovered this counter top ice cream maker.  You will find at least one frozen bowl in the freezer of each of  his family members.  Tonight I discovered that not only can you make homemade ice cream without all the chemicals and junk but you can make homemade chocolate magic shell without all the chemical and junk….and it’s super easy!   (Can you hear the angels singing?)

I found this recipe over at The Coconut Mama.  As soon as I saw the title of this blog I knew I was in the right place.. you know this girls loves her coconut oil!  So here it is easy, peasy!

Homemade Magic Shell

1/2 cup coconut oil ( I prefer Tropical Traditions)

1/2 cup  cocoa powder (I get mine here)

1/4 cup raw honey (or maple syrup)

1 T. vanilla

1 pinch sea salt ( I used REAL Salt)

Mix coconut oil, honey and cocoa powder over low heat until melted. (It looks a little grainy in the picture below but it is not at all.)

Add vanilla and salt and stir.

Serve over ice cream or your desert of choice.

Left overs can be refrigerated and then rewarmed to serve.

This stuff is Amazing Good!  I am already thinking it may show up along side my homemade caramel sauce in a few ice cream sundae gift baskets.
