Homemade Chocolate Shell


What: This "magical" three-ingredient chocolate sauce will harden into a crisp, fudgy shell when drizzled over ice cream or cold fruit. For a giftable DIY sundae kit, pair with a jar of maraschino cherries and caramel sauce.
How: Microwave 2 cups chocolate chips, 1/4 cup coconut oil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in 30-second increments until melted (or cook in a double boiler on stovetop). Transfer to a bottle or jar and store at room temperature for up to 1 month. To serve, run container under hot water or microwave until pourable.
