Chocolate Hardening Sauce [a.ka. Magic Shell] No Sugar Added



Would you like to be seen as the coolest mom in the neighborhood or at least in your family ?!!

I can tell you very simply how I became just that! I made MAGIC SHELL at home and the kids were in shock at how quickly it worked!

My kids love this junk……sigh………



Even though they only eat it occasionally I knew there had to be a way to make it at home without all that sugar!



This may not be the lowest in fat or calorie or points, but it sure beats buying it and all the other sugar that comes along in the little expensive bottle doesn’t it?

 To make this delicious sauce, just use my Chocolate Cereal Crunchie recipe and eliminate the cereal and dried cherries and there you go, DONE!



Make sure to measure well.



STIR and STIR and STIR until it is well adsorbed. That’s it!

You DO NOT have to keep this refrigerated. But if you decide to place it in the fridge you will need to heat it up before being able to pour it over anything. The coconut oil hardens in the fridge.



Pour it right onto your favorite ice cream and instantly hear the amazing oohs and ahhs coming from your family. Try it on my Chocolate Peanut Butter Dairy Free Ice Cream, Chocolate (low fat) Frozen Yogurt, or Peanut Butter Toffee Dairy Free Ice Cream!

YOU have become a miracle worker! No seriously they will be in awe of you!

  1. Yep – awesome stuff. My grandkids love it – we like peanut butter too. Thanks again for all the wonderful recipes you share!

  2. Ha – I love Magic Shell as a kid but my Mom refused to buy it. :) Nice to see a sugar-free version.

  3. My hubby and I had almost this exact sauce over our ice cream yesterday–LOVE it. :)

  4. This looks so yummy! I’ve never made a hard sauce, just regular raw chocolate sauce.

  5. I have to admit, I love that chocolate shell stuff! So I can’t wait to try this!! Thanks so much for sharing (:

  6. I always wondered if this would work, thanks for the post! Can’t wait to try this.

  7. Would this sauce work for chocolate dipped strawberries?

  8. I made this and it did harden, but it was so bitter – I must have done something wrong. I even added extra stevia, but I think I will have to try again. Has anyone else had this problem?

    • I used honey instead of stevia but mine was also very bitter, so I just added some powdered sugar and now it is sweet – and sooo good!

  9. Love this! I am not a fan of the taste of stevia though, not sure why. Do you know if anything else will work because I’d love to make this for my kids!?

  10. Kristen says:

    I don’t know if it’s the brand of Stevie used but this is both bitter and I bet sweet at the same time. If I had it to do over again, if probably melt some bakers chocolate and use maple syrup or honey along with a little cocoa powder. I wish it had worked better for me!
