Just three ingredients and a few minutes til you have delicious, homemade magic shell… just looking for an ice cream home!🙂
Hello and welcome to another edition of the Secret Recipe Club! I haven’t been around for a few months, but I’ve had a good excuse in the form of this sweet baby boy. This has been my longest–and only–hiatus from SRC since I joined… but this little guy has been well worth it.🙂
Isn’t he cute?!?? I may be a little biased but I think so… he was born in May and is doing great.🙂 Anyways, I’m happy to be back blogging and back at it with SRC. This month I was assigned to Kirstin’s blog, Loving Life, which is filled to the brim with dozens of easy family recipes. Kirstin lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family, an area of the country that I’m not very familiar with but she did live in Ohio so we have that in common. Woo! It was so hard to choose what to make from the many delcious treats she shares on her blog. This fall I want to make these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars and at Christmas, this Cranberry Apple Casserole will be sure to be on the menu. But for now, I had to go for a summer recipe… and what’s more summery than ice cream?!? Not a whole lot…
Ben and I have been going through half gallons of ice cream like nobody’s business this summer. Seriously. It’s been so hot and I haven’t had much time to bake, so ice cream is an easy and wonderful dessert option. Ben also has an ice cream pocket [a special space in his stomach to store ice cream, duh] and I am developing one, so we don’t mind a bit. Usually, we go for flavors like Peach, French Silk, Moose Tracks, Black Cherry, etc… you know, flavors that don’t really need toppings. But sometimes it’s fun to go for a classic vanilla bean and add toppings to suit your needs. Yes, I said needs. See ice cream pocket above.🙂 I like adding chocolate chips and a little bit of melted peanut butter, while Ben prefers chocolate sauce or caramel sauce. One topping we almost never have at the house because it’s so dangerous is magic shell. That stuff is FUN to watch harden on your ice cream, isn’t it? I remember when my mom bought it for the first time. We were all in awe! So when I saw that Kirstin had a homemade magic shell recipe, I had to try it out. It just takes three ingredients and a few minutes to get to magic shell perfection. I wasn’t sure if it would really work like the store bought stuff, but it DOES! I was so impressed. I know this is a recipe I’ll be making over and over again, and I hope you will too. Thanks, Kirstin! Enjoy!
