  • 1 cup Butterscotch Chips (use chocolate chips for a chocolate version)
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Oil


  • Combine butterscotch chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat until melted and smooth, stirring every 20 seconds, 1 to 3 minutes.
  • Store in the refrigerator (keeps indefinitely; will harden when cold).
  • To serve, heat in the microwave until smooth.
  • Pour over cold ice cream. (It will harden into a shell shortly after coming in contact with anything cold!)


Refined coconut oil has less coconut flavor than unrefined. I don’t find the coconut flavor to be too noticeable in the unrefined version, but if you don’t love the flavor of coconut, it’s worth tracking down the refined version.
