Our most recent use of coconut oil is in making Homemade Magic Shell icecream topping, that yummy chocolate syrup that hardens when you pour in on icecream. Our family has decided that it's better than store-bought. And, I'm all for it since it's cheaper and has the health benefits of coconut oil in it. Here's the recipe we use:
Homemade Magic Shell
1 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon sugar (you can use an alternate sweetener like stevia)
In a saucepan over low heat, melt all of the ingredients together and stir until combined.
That's it! Just keep it in your pantry, and don't refrigerate.
Try it now, and send your husband to the store for some icecream to serve it on.
Remember, you can get $10 free if you join Vitacost and order your coconut oil (or whatever you want) from them.
