Homemade ice cream bars are a guilty pleasure you can enjoy with a little less guilt by making your own two ingredient chocolate coating. This easy magic shell recipe is great on fruit, an ice cream bar, or even a bowl of ice cream. Try it today!
A special thanks to Netflix for sponsoring this recipe post.
Do you have any guilty pleasure? A treat or activity you hide from your friends and loved ones… or maybe just your kids.
I have two: eating ice cream by myself and binge watching Netflix shows.
Mom Time Out
I love my kids, but I also love a “mom time out.” It doesn’t have to be fancy, just a few quiet moments to relax. Maybe it’s watching trashy television late at night after everyone has gone to bed or maybe it’s catching up on a good book while hiding in the closet. We all need a little time to ourselves.
Am I right, moms?
Two Ingredient Magic Shell
Indulge in some extra special mom time with these easy ice cream bars made from your favorite ice cream and homemade magic shell.
- 1 pint ice cream (any flavor)
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
Spoon ice cream into popscicle molds and freeze until firm. Overnight is best.
Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a glass jar or microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds on full power. Stir until smooth. Heat for an additional 15-30 seconds if necessary. Cool to room temperature.
Remove ice cream from molds and quickly dip each bar in the chocolate "magic shell" mixture. Place on wax paper lined tray and return to freezer if ice cream is melting.
You can also spoon the chocolate "magic shell" mixture over scoops of ice cream for an easier treat. Enjoy!
I love making this easy ice cream topping, it contains less additives and artificial flavoring than store-bought ice cream topping but work the same way and tastes even better.
You can even share some with your kids. They will love it and the ice cream will be gone in a flash.
…or you can hide them all!
I am a total media addict and love binge watching series I have missed. You can indulge in this habit with a little less guilt with Netflix. They have tons of great choices at a much better price than cable.
This summer my binge watching list includes Young & Hungry, Grace & Frankie, Chelsea Does…, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Fixer Upper, Supernatural, The Great British Baking Show, Peaky Blinders, and Gilmore Girls.
I hope you find a few moments for guilty pleasures this week!
