How To Make Two Ingredient Real Food Magic Shell

Real Food Magic Shell - Clean & Delicious®

Scroll down to watch the video!

I have been so crazy excited to share this video with you guys.

Seriously.  I’m like a little kid.

As soon as I learned that I could make a real food version of magic shell (with only 2-ingredients) I rearranged the production schedule and squeezed this one right into the mix.

Do any of you guys have a guess of which two ingredients are needed?

Well, since I can’t really hear you guys, I’ll just tell you.

Chocolate and coconut oil.

The coconut oil is where the magic happens since coconut oil will melt when heated (or is above room temperature) and  will turn solid when it’s cool or cold.  So when you pour this sauce over your ice cream the coconut oil gets cold and turns itself and the chocolate into a crunchy shell.

It’s so good!  And so fun to make.  A must try.  Really, especially if you have kids.

In the video below I poured my magic shell over some good old fashioned, organic vanilla ice-cream but if you wanted to keep it super clean, you can try some of these ice-cream recipes as well:

  • 4 oz dark chocolate
  • 1 oz coconut oil


  • Set up a double boiler (see video for a demonstration). Add the chocolate and coconut oil, stirring periodically, until they have both melted in a smooth sauce. Pour into a mason jar (or some type of glass container) and allow to cool. Pour over ice cream and enjoy!
  • *I like to store my magic shell in a mason jar in the fridge. Once I'm ready to use it again, I pop the whole jar into the microwave for 20-30 seconds to loosen it up and then it's ready to go.
