Make Your Own Ice Cap

So I completely stole this recipe from the internet in general. So many people have posted it. BUT. They all posted it as a recipe for Magic Shell. And as we all know, it's actually called Ice Cap.

Here's how it's done...

Make Your Own Ice Cap 

This recipe makes about 1 ¼ cups of Ice Cap. You can double it or triple it if you have a lot of kids... Or a sweet tooth.

  • ½ cup cocoa powder 
  • ½ cup coconut oil 
  • ¼ cup honey (or double if you like it very sweet. I don't.)

  1. Put a little bit of water in a small pot. 
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a small jug with a spout. 
  3. Put the jug in the pot. Voila! A double boiler that will be easy to pour out of later. 
  4. Put the pot on the heat. High, in case you were wondering. 
  5. Once it starts melting, stir continously until everything is nicely mixed together. 
  6. Once it's very smooth and super runny, turn the heat off. It should be ready before the water in the pot even starts boiling. If not, and the water starts simmering, turn the heat down. No need to get splashed with boiling water unnecessarily. 
  7. Pour the sauce out into a pretty bottle. 
A Pretty Bottle!
I used an old olive oil bottle. The little pouring thing in the top is really useful for carefully pouring runny chocolate sauce... 

Anyway, you can keep this in the cupboard for a while, or in the fridge for longer. Just heat it up over some warm water if it solidifies in the bottle. 

And I bet you can't guess what I tested mine on. (Because this is the first time I've made it, by the way. Hence the required testing.) 

No, that funny little brown thing isn't what you're sniggering about.
Yes, you figured it out! Half of a frozen banana! AND IT WORKED! :D 
And, better than that, it tasted good. The sauce is quite bitter on its own, but when it's covering a sweet, frozen banana, it tastes great. So I'm quite chuffed. 

Now go and try it yourself. It's much cheaper than buying the normal Ice Cap, and probably healthier, too, if you care about that. 

Goodnight! (Good morning?)
