Ice magic

When it's almost bedtime my kids have a habit of hassling me for dessert or something sweet. This is my go to every time and it brings back memories of my childhood when we used to get the 'real' (nasty) ice magic and squirt it all over a big bowl of ice cream.
This is delicious on so many different frozen treats, frozen fruit, really cold fruit, homemade ice cream or frozen yogurt or even homemade vanilla icy poles dipped straight in so it encases it with a chocolate shell - YUM! And you can add a few drops of peppermint oil or a little freshly brewed coffee to make different flavours.

It really is this easy...
Melt 1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil to 2 tablespoons of dark 70% (we like it even darker) chocolate this is enough for two people, so double for four and so on. I sprinkle a little himalayan salt in to the melted choc/coconut for extra yumminess. Then all you do is spoon it over your frozen fruit and in a second it's crisp like a shell. I never thought ice magic could be so healthy!
