Unicorn Magic Shell


  1. 1/2 cup bright white candy melts
    2 tablespoons coconut oil
    2 drops pink food coloring
    2 drops purple food coloring
    Sprinkles, to garnish


  1. Add candy melts and coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high heat for 30-45 seconds. Remove from heat and stir until smooth.
  2. Let cool slightly and then add food coloring. Give it a quick swirl so there are ribbons of pink and purple in the magic shell but it's not fully incorporated.
  3. Pour over ice cream, top with sprinkles, let harden, and enjoy!
