This December, we’re going to show you how you can achieve great taste using everyone’s favorite treat: chocolate. This content was created in partnership with Food52.
We’re happy with a minimalist cone every once in a while, but good ice cream can only get better with the right topping. Tonight, forget the hot fudge: We’re making our own chocolate shell, in just 2 ingredients and under 5 minutes. A little nostalgic and likely the easiest thing you’ll do in the kitchen all week, this recipe works with any type of chocolate you like. Check out how we make it in the video below (We used milk chocolate here, but feel free to switch it up).
Ingredients for Chocolate Shell
2 bars (160 grams) good quality chocolate
100 grams (about 1/2 cup) coconut oil
Ice cream, for serving
If you have any left over — though we’re guessing you won’t — just store it in the fridge. You can melt it down again when you’re ready for round two.
Live.Love.Lux Tip: Want to avoid condensation on your leftover chocolate shell? Electrolux refrigerators have you covered thanks to their humidity-controlled crisper drawers that will keep moisture away.
