My family loves Magic Shell but I don't get it often, but as easy as this is I will from now on. I used a combo of milk chocolate and semi sweet, and it turned out perfect. Served over homemade french vanilla ice cream. Tastes even better than the real thing, I also made it in the microwave for ease.

I made this for my husband on the fly b/c he is a magic shell-lover and we didn't have any on hand for his ice cream. He likes it even better than the original! Thanks for sharing--it's so easy and very tasty. To make it, I put semi-sweet chocolate chips in a bowl with the chopped butter and zapped it in the microwave on full power for 40 seconds, stirred, and zapped for another 20 seconds and stirred again. That was enough to get it completely melted and smooth.

This did not work for me. It did not get hard. It was very thick. Thicker than a hot fudge. I tried a different and healthier recipe using coconut oil and it worked wonderfully and tasted awesome!

Well, it works. It does get hard like Magic Shell. My kids didn't like it as much, though.

Just made this completely last minute. Not only is it super easy but it tastes way better than the stuff they sell in stores! (no vegetable oils or super hydrogenated coconut oils).

My kids and I really like magic shell sauce, but it is so expensive at the store! We decided to try this one since it had just a couple ingredients. Delicious! We did one little twist to it and added 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract. Yum! Thanks for posting!
