Childhood memories are so sweet. Who didn't love a Dairy Queen dipped cone? They actually have a product called "Magic Shell" which allows you to relive that memory at home. Turns out you can make your own with chocolate chips and coconut oil. Thanks to a friend's post on facebook I got the recipe here at http://www.skiptomylou.org/2011/07/08/diy-magic-shell/ .
Measure 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips into a bowl and add 1/2 cup solid coconut oil.
Microwave 1-1 1/2 minutes.
Dribble over ice cream (We used a medicine dispenser but you can also just pour).
That's it, easy peasey. I put the finished product in a jar in the fridge where it can be reheated in the microwave whenever we need. I love being able to make products like this at my house with stuff I just have in the cupboard. Hurray for facebook and cooking blogs!

|This was the most delicious desert I've had in years...Homemade raspberry pie, a scoop of ice cream, magic shell on top. SO YUMMY!!!!!|
