Do you remember “Magic Shell?” Do they even still make that stuff it anymore? Ahh, I remember when it first came out. I was so little, but I remember thinking how cool it was and that it really must have been magic. Well, my good friend Alex passed this idea on to me and my kids are so thankful for it! And, I know I say it a lot, but really, this is crazy easy to make!
Just heat a couple of handfuls of dark chocolate (I use 70% cacao from Whole Foods) in a cup in the microwave for about 45 seconds and stir. Once it’s all melted, add in some coconut oil (about 1-2 tsp) and mix it together. Then immediately pour on some ice cream and let the kids enjoy this fun treat.
Looks just like the stuff we use to eat, right??
And yes, my kids still eat ice cream. They eat well most of the time so I’m okay with a dessert like this occasionally. For this, we used good ole fashioned Breyers (lesser of the evil with their simple ingredients, I guess) but for other ice cream treats, we really like the Coconut Milk So Delicious Minis. Honestly, I would just rather do the plain coconut ice cream, but at $5 something a pint, we have to limit that.
You got it all, buddy?
My kids are close, but not that close. Notice the casual arm block, but her eyes never leave the prize…
Happy almost Easter! Hopefully I’ll be back in a week or so with some fun SF/LA pics!!
