When I was a child, I used to love Cottee’s Ice Magic. I remember pouring so much Ice Magic onto my ice cream that there was more Ice Magic than ice cream in my bowl. The fun part of the Ice Magic, was watching it harden and then using a spoon to crack it open. Since then, I have not eaten Ice Magic. Yesterday, I got to relive my childhood memories when I found out there was a way to make Ice Magic at home.
I was so excited when I saw a tweet on Twitter from Tim from @urbanfoodmarket about how he made his own Ice Magic. When I saw the tweet, I almost thought I was seeing things. I immediately replied to Tim’s tweet to ask for the recipe. When Tim told me the recipe, I could not believe how easy it was to make.
Being the crazy foodie that I am, I tested the recipe the next morning. I still could not believe how easy it was to make. The homemade Ice Magic looked exactly like Cottee’s Ice Magic, but it tasted better. The homemade Ice Magic melted in my mouth and it did not taste too sweet.
I am not sure if this new found knowledge is a good or bad thing, but what I do know is that I can have fun being a child again.
Homemade Ice Magic
Cooking Chocolate (I used dark chocolate melts)
Coconut Oil (I used unrefined organic coconut oil)
Put equal amounts of coconut oil and chocolate into a microwave safe bowl. Place the bowl into the microwave and cook the ingredients on half power for approximately 50 seconds. Take the bowl out of the microwave and give the ingredients a mix. If the ingredients need further melting, place the bowl back in the microwave on half power for a further 15 seconds. Pour the mixture onto cold ice cream and watch it harden. Too easy!
