Recipe: Homemade ‘Ice Magic’ Chocolate Shell Sauce

icemagic
Most Australians would be familiar with the chocolate sauce called ‘Ice Magic’, available in supermarkets. Thinking about it brings back a lot of fun childhood memories for me. It’s a sauce that quickly hardens into a crispy shell when poured onto a cold surface such as ice cream.  A similar product would be Magic Shell. 

 

It’s a super fun treat for kids parties! I’ve included a homemade recipe here, which is delicious and healthier than the store bought versions. This recipe uses coconut oil, an oil touted for its nutritional qualities (everything in moderation of course).

Notes
  1. Dark chocolate can be replaced with milk or white chocolate. Try adding flavouring such as mint, banana, caramel etc.
  2. Chocolate shell sauce should be stored in a jar or squeeze bottle, in the cupboard. In cold weather, the sauce may harden. To bring back the sauce to a liquid consistency, reheat in microwave.

This sauce would make an awesome homemade gift, especially in an ice cream decorating kit like I have put together below. I’ve packaged some Kit Kat wafers, Smarties and toasted almonds in plastic bottles from the Red Carousel shop. To complete the kit, I’ve added some Candy CupsWooden Ice cream Spoons, a gift tag and twine – all available from our online shop

 

Yum, I know what we’re having for dessert tonight!
