Coconut runs rampant in chocolate coated ICE CREAMS!

It looks so innocent.  But it has coconut in it.


If you are allergic to coconut, please stay away from any hardened-type chocolate or other flavored coating on ice cream like DQ dipped cones. Even chocolate chip ice cream has coconut in the chocolate chunks or chips 95% of the time.  I have allergic reactions to the hot fudge sauce at Baskin Robbins, so be careful there, too.  Most ice creams there do contain coconut, but they have ingredients listed right on the case so they make it easy to see.


Also, for the eating at home ice cream folks, read the labels because Magic shell and all other known hardening toppings have coconut in them.

But, I'll give you some hope.  You can make your own magic shell!  Just melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1 tsp canola oil in the microwave for a minute, stir, and then add 30 seconds until it is completely melted.  Let cool slightly and pour it over your favorite (coconut free) ice cream.  It's even yummier than the bottled stuff.

Also, my family has a favorite homemade microwave hot fudge sauce recipe that is just like this one:  http://www.food.com/recipe/easy-microwave-hot-fudge-topping-82303

Enjoy your sweet treats this summer without a trip to the hospital!
