Homemade Magic Shell

This was delicious and easy, and the kids were so excited about it.  I've seen recipes online here and there over the last few years and kind of combined them to make this treat.  I melted semisweet chocolate chips, butter, and virgin coconut oil together.  About 60 seconds after drizzling onto ice cream, it forms a hardened chocolate shell.

1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (milk choc. does not work as well)
1 tablespoon butter
1-2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil

1.  In a heavy saucepan (or a double boiler) over the lowest heat, melt all ingredients together, stirring often.  If mixture is too thick to drizzle, add more coconut oil until it thins out.  Vigorous whisking helps, as well.  :) 

2.  Drizzle over scoops of ice cream.  Wait about a minute for a hard shell to form, then enjoy.  Leftover sauce warms up great in the microwave.
