The first industrial use of ice cream coating with the ice cream was in the 1920s. Harry Burt developed a smooth chocolate coating that was compatible with ice cream.

Ice cream coating is usually a very high-fat product which will change its viscosity and behavior during production. Ice cream coatings are thin layers which are manufactured from comparatively inexpensive fats like coconut oil or hydrogenated palm kernel fat. Coconut oil and palm kernel oil provides decent snap of coating and pleasant cool melting. The total fat content present in ice cream coating is often above 60% than their counterparts (28-35%) to achieve a sufficiently thin layer and a short crystallization time. The excellent tasting coating increases the quality and production and decreases the price problems. Ice Cream coating is heated up to 30-35 ?C. The deep-frozen ice cream stick is dipped into the warm ice cream coating. The coatings are solidifying quickly on the ice cream stick, so the coating is sufficiently solid at the time of packaging. The ice cream coatings are supplied via buckets, containers or liquid food tankers.
