 So since having Piper, things in my house for my older two have been L-A-M-E.  Like we don’t go anywhere, we don’t do anything, nothing is fun.  Ever.

In an effort to still be the “cool mom,” I’ve been trying to spice things up at home.

One way I decided to be cool lately was sugar.  And lots of it.

So I made my kids an ice cream sundae bar after dinner one night!  I opened up the blog cabinet, and it was like Mary Poppins opening her purse, only instead of a spoonful of sugar, it was more like a bucketful of sugar.  And sprinkles.  And hot fudge.  And mini marshmallows.  And mini chocolate chips.  And maraschino cherries.  And more sprinkles.

They were thrilled! #momwin

And then we had a four hour hurricane.  #hurricaneplussugaredupkidsequalsdisaster

So the ice cream sundae bar is going to be a regular occurrence around my house now.  Anytime I need a win, the sprinkles are coming out in FULL force.

Well the other day, I saw my buddy Dorothy post about DIY Birthday Cake Magic Shell.  Umm . . . say what??  She is a GENIUS!

And it got me thinking . . . what other kinds of flavored magic shell can there be??

Basically magic shell is chocolate and oil.  It’s just all in getting the right consistency so that it is a liquid in the container and a solid on the ice cream.  When you do that with chocolate chips it’s a little easier than when you do it with something like Nutella, which is obviously already not a solid.  Our first version tasted bad.  Just really really bad.

This version has that wonderful Nutella taste, and although it doesn’t get hard like a shell and works much better as a drizzle than if you pour it, it definitely solidifies and is such a perfect ice cream topper.  Which is great for two little kids who were recently introduced to the wonder that is Nutella.

Nutella Magic Shell

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 TBSP vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the oil and Nutella.
  2. Microwave in 30 second intervals at 50% power, mixing in between, until fully combined. About a minute or a minute and a half.
  3. Once cooled, drizzle over ice cream.
  4. Store at room temperature.

Notes

This magic shell works best on ice cream right from the freezer. While it will solidify on the ice cream, it won't get quite the crunch that traditional magic shell does.

    This sounds yummy, but I am going to try it with coconut oil. That is what I use to make my “regular” homemade Magic Shell. It is what they use in the commercial Magic Shell, too. it has a lower melting point, so I think it might give you that crunch you are looking for.

    I totally understand the magic of that night. It would work with me! Upon occasion when I am having guests over, my dessert is make your own sundaes. It is always popular, like I had slaved over some involved French masterpiece. Ice cream is a strong lure for just about everyone. Then when you have toppings like this nutella one. Well its over the top.

    I feel the same way with my 3 kidlets too. I’m mobility disabled so getting out and about is such a big fuss which makes me feel that my kids suffer because of my illness, pffft! One of the many reasons I started baking and blogging. But these, yes these, look awesome and the best way to spice things up at home is with good food and happy smiley faces. Achievement unlocked :)

    Seriously though, this looks gorgeous and I have 3 nutella fuelled kids in this house as it is. They would die over that crack coating, and I have ice cream and nutella in too #hasgottobedone.

    This has inspired me too. Ooo, the ideas are flowing.
