I like to prepare almost everything homemade. I atleast give it a try. Even my DH use to ask why I have to strain myself instead of buying easily from the store. Sometimes, the cost and labor both might seem to be less when storebought. But the satisfaction after making these homemade goodies is totally cannot be compared with anything else. When I gave a scoop of homemade dulce de leche icecream (Click for the recipe), with a drizzle of this chocolate hard shell sauce, my elder one was happy and all surprised and was repeatedly asking me “How did you make this Amma (Mom)??? How did youuuu???? . I was googling one day to find if chocolate hard shell sauce can be made at home and thousands of results lined up and I felt I was too late and not going to be the early ones to try this recipe. Within a couple of minutes, this incredible chocolate hard shell sauce can be prepared at home. Why to buy store bought ones hereafter ???
In the second picture you could see the icecream dripping down, but not the chocolate sauce .
Homemade Chocolate Hard Shell sauce Recipe Using Coconut Oil
1 cup plus 1 tbsp. semi sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsps. coconut oil
1. In a microwave safe bowl, add the semi sweet chocolate chips and coconut oil and heat for 30 seconds. Stir and heat for another 30 seconds and from then on 10 seconds once remove and stir until the chocolate chips are completely melted. It exactly took 30 secs + 30 secs + 7 secs +10 secs for mine to completely melt. It might vary depending on the oven and outside temperature.
2. Transfer the content to a clean airtight container. Allow it to cool and close the lid. Store it at room temperature.
3. Microwave for 30 seconds just before using. Drizzle on your favorite icecream with your favorite nuts on top of it ( I used walnuts for the picture) or serve with just the chocolate sauce. It will harden in seconds .
