So what’s the secret? Coconut oil! Seriously, is there anything that’s not amazing about coconut oil? There are so many uses for this wonderful, natural ingredient. At room temperature, coconut oil is a soft solid. When it gets cold, though, it hardens! Mix it with some good quality organic cocoa powder and raw honey, and you’ve got a liquid at room temperature that will harden into rich, crunch candy on contact with ice cream. It’s as easy at that!

The best thing about this recipe is that it’s not only magical and delicious, it’s also really good for you! You’re combining the health benefits of coconut oil with endorphin-boosting, antioxidant rich cocoa powder and honey. It stores beautifully on the shelf in a mason jar, ready for the next round (although you’ll want to stir it well before you pour it on). No need to feel bad pouring a generous helping of this treat over your ice cream! And speaking of ice cream…it’s not hard to make your own using organic, grass fed raw cream and  just a handful of other wholesome ingredients. The perfect pairing for a summer dessert that no one will forget!
