Magic shell nostalgia
Magic chocolate shell is one of those foods from childhood that always brings back good memories. It’s unexpected, interactive, and delicious. Not to mention, it’s made of chocolate.
For years, I’ve been making my own, healthy version of the popular ice cream topping.
The actual ‘magic’ ingredient? Coconut oil.
I like using this organic coconut oil but you can use any brand you have on hand. Coconut oil is a magical ingredient as it changes from liquid to solid when the temperature changes.
And today, we’re taking it to the next (trendy) level by making it a matcha flavored magic shell.
Making your matcha magic shell
Once your coconut oil reaches a liquid state, making your matcha magic shell is as simple as melting in your chocolate and finally mixing in the matcha powder.
This recipe is so simple, it’s appropriate for all ages. That’s right, all ages! This recipe happens in the microwave in 15 second increments.
Just pop your coconut oil and chocolate in a bowl, and microwave, stirring every 15 seconds. Once the mixture is fully melted, stir in the matcha powder.
If you want to keep things classic, skip the matcha and make a traditional magic chocolate shell.
Another fun twist on this recipe is swapping the chocolate for white chocolate but keeping the matcha. This version results in a vibrant bright green chocolate shell that is sure to have guests wondering what it’s made of.
From there, you’re good to pour this stuff over just about anything cold. Ice cream, frozen fruit, smoothie bowls, etc.
Get creative and have fun with your new magical dessert!
