Remember the other day, on Cup of Jo, she featured that Homemade Magic Shell created by Hither & Thither?
With a recent investment in a jar of cake batter coconut oil, making the magic shell instantly came to mind.
Nothing wrong with enjoying a little ice cream once in awhile, right?
Add chopped nuts and seeds to the rim of those 3 oz Ben & Jerry cups of Cherry Garcia and Chocolate Fudge Brownie -- makes the sinfully goodness, even better.
We used more of a 1:4 ratio with this recipe, meaning, we used 1 tablespoon of cake batter coconut oil paired with 4 tablespoons of the chocolate chips. Otherwise, we needed a baseball bat to break through that shell. I think because the cake batter oil has more stuff in it (salt, coconut, cake bits..?) compared to regular coconut oil, that's my guess.
Here's what to do, in a clean bowl:
*Put about 4 tablespoons chocolate or vanilla chips in bowl.
*Microwave chips for 30 seconds.
*Stir well, making sure chips are well melted. You want that silky, melted chocolate (or vanilla) like Hither & Thither mentions.
*Now add 1 tablespoon cake batter coconut oil and stir well.
*Let sit for about 15 minutes, then add to the top of your favorite ice cream.
*Perform extra exercise as needed, to compensate. *note to self
