No. 3: Grant’s Magic Chocolate Sauce

You know how you can buy that “magic” chocolate sauce at the grocery store that hardens when you pour it onto your ice cream? Well, our dessert whiz Grant figured out how to make it at home with only two ingredients! Just melt chocolate chips in coconut oil and stir until well combined. Pour on top of your ice cream, let it sit a minute, and watch it firm up!
