Magic Shell-y

I couldn't resist that blog title.

What a yummy dessert this was the other night. Mini Protein Ice Cream Snowballs drizzled with homemade Sugar Free Magic Shell. This is a great way to serve ice cream at a party. No time consuming scooping. The balls are already made before your guests even get there.


Shelly's Protein Ice Cream Snowballs

You need:
Protein Ice Cream (any flavor)
Small Ice Cream Scoop
Unsweetened Coconut (alternatives: Unsweetened Cocoa, Crushed Nuts)
a batch of Shelly's Magic Shell

Make a batch of protein ice cream. When it comes out of the ice cream machine it's soft serve stage, scoop it into a Tupperware and freeze till scoopable stage about 1 hour. If you freeze it more than that and it gets too hard to scoop just nuke 20 seconds or so to get it back to scoopable. Using a small ice cream scoop make several small balls. Roll in unsweetened coconut.

Freeze balls again for a few minutes while you make the Magic Shell.

Shelly's Magic Shell

2 Snack Size Sugar Free Chocolate Bars (Milk, Dark, White) (CVS, Walgreens, RiteAid, Walmart, Target)
1/2 teaspoon Canola Oil

Microwave chocolate bars & oil in 25 second increments till melted. Stir to combine. Drizzle over ice cream snowballs. In moments it will set hard like magic. Makes enough drizzle for 6 snowballs.

Some yummy combos: Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Ice Cream and Dark Chocolate Magic Shell, Black Cherry Protein Ice Cream & Milk Chocolate Magic Shell, Lemon Meringue Pie Protein Ice Cream and White Chocolate Magic Shell (SF White Chocolate is harder to find: my source is Amber Lynn Chocolates)
