1 1/3 cups


  • 1 11-12 ounce package semisweet or bittersweet chocolate pieces

  • ¼ cup coconut oil


  1. Place chocolate and coconut oil in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Cook on 50% power (medium) for 1 minute; stir. Continue to cook at 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until almost melted. Remove and stir until completely melted. Pour over ice cream in dishes. Allow to harden 30 to 60 seconds.

  2. Store remaining mixture in a glass jar at room temperature up to 1 week. If mixture hardens, uncover and reheat in the microwave on 50% power (medium) about 40 seconds or until just softened but not warm; stir.



This recipe also works well with butterscotch pieces, white baking pieces, peanut butter pieces, cinnamon pieces, or cherry pieces.
