Melt the chocolate using either a double boiler or the microwave. (If using the microwave, melt it by microwaving on the high setting for 30 seconds at a time. Remove the chocolate, stri thoroughly, and repeat until fully melted.)
If the coconut oil is in a solid state, heat it until it is liquid. You can melt it together with the chocolate, if you prefer. Thoroughly mix the liquid coconut oil with the melted chocolate.
Pour into a storage container.
Mix before using.
Serve it by spooning it over frozen desserts or by dipping frozen fruit into it.
Nutritional information will depend on the chocolate used. Use a dairy-free or vegan chocolate if you want to make a dairy-free or vegan shell topping.Store at room temperature in a well-sealed container. Shake the ingredients together before each use. If the ingredients have solidified due to colder storage temperatures, melt the mixture before using it by placing the container in a bowl of warm water, or by microwaving for a few seconds, until melted. If using a jar for storage, spoon the mixture over ice cream or another frozen treat. (You could dip frozen fruit into it too!) If you have a squeeze-type container, you can easily dispense the topping over the frozen dessert.
