More tips for you
- The chocolate can be melted in the method that you prefer to use. However, I find that it is easiest to melt the chocolate using the microwave method.
- While the melted chocolate smells so yummy when first made, it is a good idea to allow it to cool before placing it on top of something cold such as ice cream. If the chocolate is too warm it can melt the ice cream.
- Make sure that you do not add anything else other than the chocolate and coconut oil when you make this. Ingredients such as water can ruin your magic shell.
