Dairy-Free Magic Shell Chocolate Topping

This is beyond simple to make and will impress your kids (if you don't have kids, impress yourself)! 

Dairy-Free Magic Shell Chocolate Topping
recipe adapted from The Coconut Mama


  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil (I recommend Barlean's)
  • 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder (I recommend Ghirardelli)
  • 1/4 Cup Raw Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Sea Salt


Gently heat the coconut oil, cocoa powder and honey together in a small saucepan over low. Stir until ingredients are melted. Add vanilla and salt and mix.  Pour warm magic shell sauce over ice cream or dessert of choice. 

Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator. Reheat over low to reuse.

This recipe makes approximately 1 1/4 cup of magic shell sauce.

NOTES: I added 1/4 cup Barlean's Silk Chocolate Greens powder (which I buy from Amazon) and 1/4 cup cocoa and it turned out great. I don't plan to store this in the fridge, but plan to keep at room temp and use within a few days.
