Servings: 4-6
Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes

Melt chocolate in a double boiler. When soft, add coconut oil and stir until combined.

Remove from heat and store (preferably) in a glass container. No need to refrigerate. You can store it in the refrigerator, but it will become solid. To liquefy it, submerge the container in warm to hot water for a few minutes.

Serve over ice cream.

Like semi-sweet bars? Or are you talking like a candy bar? I notice there is no sugar in this or any other kind of healthy sweetener for that matter. Please advise! Thanks for the recipe.

Joyce: Use an eating chocolate that's already sweetened. The classic hard shell taste is dark chocolate but you can use bittersweet, semi sweet, milk, white...whatever you prefer.

Chocolate chips work really well! :) Now that I think about it... I wonder if peanut-butter chips or butterscotch chips would work jsut as well. I'll try it and keep you posted

This is brilliant! Simple and healthy. So much better than the corn syrup tainted fake stuff from the store. I love this. Thanks!

For a sugar free alternative, I make something similar with 3/4 cup cocoa, 1 cup coconut oil, 1 teaspoon stevia, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Does this have to be used on something frozen? I was wondering if it would work to cover cold strawberries.

Jessica, as long as you kept the strawberries cold, I think it would be ok, but if they warmed up to the point where the coconut oil turns liquid (about 75 degrees), that wouldn't be good. Maybe if you kept them on ice? I've only used it on ice cream.
