Tabasco Chocolate Magic Shell -

I like a good challenge. I’m competitive by nature – and whether it’s sports or cooking, I love a good challenge and a good throw down. I’m still waiting to throw down with my boss over his so-called best chocolate chip cookies ever. But since he got married last week, that throwdown will have to wait a little long. But I’ve been getting my competitive streak on with this latest challenge from Tabasco¬†where me and some of your other favorite bloggers dig deep for our most creative ways to use Tabasco.

Did I mention the kicker? There are only TEN ingredients we can use!!

Only 10 ingredients. Yeah, this is a serious challenge. Check out our list of ingredients below and stay tuned all week the new favorites we will be creating.


As soon as I saw dark chocolate I knew where I was going with it – Magic Shell! And spicy magic shell was all sorts of winning. Ben and I have been ¬†keeping well stocked up on ice cream bars now that it’s summer, so magic shell goes on top of everything frozen in this household. No shame. To make it a frozen Mexican Hot Chocolate experience, this spicy chocolate magic shell is fantastic on Cinnamon ice cream, and I hear from another friend she loves its on her coconut ice cream. Obviously it goes great on anything frozen!

Yield: 1/2 cup

Tabasco Chocolate Magic Shell


3-4 ounces Dark Chocolate, chopped

1/4 cup Coconut Oil

1/2 tsp Tabasco Original Red Sauce



In a microwave safe bowl, add coconut oil and chopped dark chocolate. Microwave for 2 minutes on 50% power. Stir. The chocolate may not appear to have melted completely until stirring. If necessary continue microwaving for 15 seconds at a time until the mixture is smooth when stirred.

When the chocolate is melted, stir in 1/2 teaspoon of Tabasco Original Red Sauce. Add more if you want your Magic Shell to be extra spicy! Serve over your favorite ice cream - I recommend Cinnamon Ice cream for a real Mexican Hot Chocolate inspired treat!
