Strawberry Ice Cream with Magic Shell

Ingredients:

for the ice cream:
3 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup frozen strawberries

for the magic shell:
4 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
4 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 tbsp coconut oil

Instructions:
In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of the cream, sugar, and salt.
Warm the mixture over medium heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Remove from heat and stir in the remaining cream and the vanilla.
Pour the cream mixture into a bowl and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
When the cream mixture is ready, blend the strawberries until pureed. (If you'd prefer bigger chunks in your ice cream, you can blend less).
Stir the strawberry puree into the cream mixture.
Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Transfer the ice cream to a plastic container. Enjoy as soft serve, or freeze for several hours for a more traditional ice cream texture.
While the ice cream is churning, make the magic shell. Boil water in a saucepan, then reduce to a simmer and place a small glass bowl on top of the saucepan to make a double broiler, making sure that the bowl doesn't touch the water. Place the chocolate and coconut oil in the bowl and stir until melted.
Serve the magic shell over the ice cream.
