Chocolate Shell Ice Cream Topping

Cuisinart original

This is perfect for topping an ice cream sundae or cone. There are two different ways to assemble an ice cream sundae with the hard chocolate coating: either finish with sprinkles, toasted nuts, and chopped cookies, but be fast because the chocolate will harden quickly after it hits the cold ice cream; or start with the other toppings (toasted nuts, cookies, caramel sauce) and then finish with the hard chocolate coating.


Makes about ½ cup


½   cup semisweet chocolate chips
1   tablespoon coconut oil
      Pinch flaked sea salt
