How do you top ice cream?

I could eat ice cream every day, I don’t, but I could! To be honest, when I’m on summer vacation on the East Coast, I do eat it every day. I consider it a food group unto itself. Toppings make it even better.

Some of my favorites are:

Caramel sauce (check out Trader Joe’s for the ultimate indulgence)

Marshmallow Cream

Heath Bits O’Brickle (must be Irish)

Jimmies (or chocolate sprinkles to those of you outside New England) it’s urban legend that the word is a racial slur, that’s just not true, check snopes

Mini Reese’s, chopped

While I’m not a big fan of Hot Fudge, I am very fond of Magic Shell, and I was so happy to find that I could make my own version…

Home made magic shell –what’s that you ask? How do you make it at home? It’s so easy and much better than the store bought.

1/4 cup semi sweet, or milk chocolate chips

1 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil

melt chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts, stir in coconut oil once the chocolate has melted, and I like to add Heath Bits O’Brickle for a little crunch…

that’s for one serving, for more check out this recipe

Try this recipe and let me know what you think of it.

Thanks to for the photo.

  1. Mmmm… looks v nice. It looks almost like the häagen dazs chocolate topping.

  2. Dearest sweetaddict,

    Really, you have saved my fall, winter and spring, for now with your amazing Magic Shell recipe my beloved Dippy Cone season, which seemed only to extend during the summer soft serve season, can last all year. I mean what could be better than homemade chocolate shell all 12 months of the year? Now it is time to stock up on ice cream, semi-sweet chocolate morsels, and coconut oil (which has many health benefits!) Love it!
