Made with just two simple ingredients: natural peanut butter and coconut oil, this homemade peanut butter magical shell is the easiest ice cream dessert recipe you’ll ever make.
I have never been a huge fan of sweets, you’ve probably gathered that by now. But one dessert I can always get down with? Ice cream. Specifically, chocolate peanut butter ice cream.
We live within walking distance to my favorite local ice cream shop that I’ve been going to since I was a little kid. They opened their doors for the season March 1st and once again I’ll have to start reinstating my strict twice a month ice cream shoppe rule.
The solution? My fast, easy, and much healthier homemade peanut butter magic shell. Made with just two simple ingredients: natural peanut butter and coconut oil, it literally takes just minutes to prepare.
Of course, I love drizzling it over chocolate ice cream but it is also delicious as a dip for fresh fruit like bananas or apple slices for a fast after-school snack. Heck, you could drizzle it over oatmeal or waffles for all I care. I won’t tell.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?? Any other chocolate peanut butter fans??
No forks required.
- 1/4 cup creamy natural peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- ice cream of choice to serve
Place the peanut butter and coconut oil in a small microwavable bowl and heat until fully melted, about 40 seconds, stirring once at the halfway point.
To serve, drizzle over your favorite ice cream.
