My boys came home from church camp so we threw a family ice cream party. We had Orange Cream Sundaes , and I just couldn’t help but try homemade chocolate hard shell topping.  There are so many recipes floating around the internet so I pieced together one that would work for us.  It is the perfect addition to your ice cream party or family sundae night.

  • 2 Cups Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil


  • Put the chocolate chips and coconut oil into a microwavable dish. Microwave for 20 second intervals stirring after each interval. It only took two intervals before mine was perfect.
  • Let it cool to room temperature, but DO NOT refrigerate. It will harden solid in the refrigerator.
  • Drizzle over ice cream and enjoy!
