Butterscotch Magic Shell Ingredients

Butterscotch Magic Shell Recipe

1/2 cup coconut oil (measured when solid)
1 1/2 cups butterscotch baking chips

Melt butterscotch chips and coconut oil in the microwave about 1-2 minutes (depending on your microwave, start with 1 minute. Be careful not to overheat or the mixture will crystalize). Allow to sit a few minutes to allow the heat of the oil to melt the chocolate chips and then stir until smooth. It will be runny.

Scoop up some ice cream, pour the butterscotch topping over the ice cream and like magic it creates a delicious shell!

  1. So am I right in assuming this will work with any baking chips because I love mint ones and mint shell sounds awesome

  2. Does this store the same as magic shell, being good for multiple uses? Will the coconut mixture need to be reheated every time after it has cooled? If not, your measurements make way too much topping and those chips are very expensive.
