I just got back from an awesome trip to Williamsburg with my family. Traveling and blogging didn't mix well for me, so sorry about the absence this past weekend. I can't wait to share with you about our trip. I will be doing that later this week. Be sure to come back for some great tips on Williamsburg. Now, onto today's post!
As a little girl, I loved to go to Tastee Freez with my family and get a chocolate or cherry dipped ice cream cone. The hard candy shell covering my soft serve vanilla ice cream was just divine. I have never seen a cherry magic shell sold in stores, but I have found Chocolate, and Peanut Butter. I just love the taste of the peanut butter magic shell.
Since I don't usually keep those toppings in the house I often have to get creative. One night I really wanted peanut butter with my ice cream, but didn't want a big glop of it, so I melted a little down and drizzled it over my ice cream. Much to my amazement, it hardened just like the magic shell and tasted great!
I was so excited over this discovery! So this is more a tip/trick rather than an actual recipe, but it delicious. :)
DIY Peanut Butter Magic Shell
1 TBSP creamy peanut butter
Place in a microwave safe dish and heat in 30 second intervals until completely melted. Stir and drizzle over ice cream. Grab a spoon and go to town! This will make enough for two dishes of ice cream maybe more depending on how thick you like it. I like it nice and thick!
***Tip - To make Chocolate Magic Shell follow directions above but use 1 cup chocolate chips mixed with 1 tsp of vegetable oil in place of peanut butter.
If you haven't already, I would love it if you would follow me!
