Instant Chocolate Hard Shell

Banana Bites

“I’ve been looking at this instant chocolate hard shell recipe for a bit, but had no Ice cream to try it on. But I had a good idea as I had bananas that were going to go too soft. So I tried dipping frozen sliced bananas in it. Wow! What a nice way to use up bananas if you have too many. I like chocolate covered frozen bananas. I tried dipping a strawberry in it and it made for a much easier chocolate to dip them in too! Nice thin coating like the kind you spend lots of money on.” – Calla Ferre

Instant Chocolate Hard Shell

Course: Frozen Desserts


  • 2 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2/3 Cup Coconut Oil


  • Combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave in 30-second intervals, mixing well each time, until mixture is smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. It takes about 1 minute of stirring until they fully mix together.
  • Store at room temperature in an air-tight container.
  • For thinner, crispier hard shell, add more oil; add less for a thicker hard shell.
