Level up your frozen treats with this decadent chocolate topping.

Nothing beats a bowl or cone of ice cream on a hot summer day - except one with a rich, chocolaty shell. Add a fun, nostalgic crunch to your next frozen treat with this chocolate shell recipe created by Katy, Product Development Manager at Theo. This dairy-free topping starts as a liquid for easy drizzling and cools into a satisfyingly crunchy shell.

Scoop of ice cream with a chocolate shell in a blue bowl.


  • 1 3oz Theo Chocolate Pure 70% Dark Chocolate bar
  • ¼ cup refined* coconut oil
  • *Note: using virgin coconut oil will give your chocolate ice cream shell a slight coconut flavor. We suggest refined coconut oil for a more classic chocolate flavor.


  1. Chop the Pure 70% Dark Chocolate bar into small pieces and place in a small bowl. Add the coconut oil.
  2. Carefully melt the chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave, stirring every 15 seconds, until the mixture is completely melted and combined.
  3. Pour the chocolate-coconut mixture over ice cream and enjoy!
