Is magic shell a fad food? To me, it takes me back to walking the ice cream shoppe on a hot Michigan summer day. Get the vanilla soft serve (or better yet, swirl!) and order it dipped in chocolate. You’d bite into that hardened chocolate to find melty, creamy ice cream below. Perfection.
I could go for that right about now.
I like to think of this homemade magic shell as the classier big sis of the chocolate fudge version (although I have nothing against that version!).
Plus, I’m sort of infatuated with this flavor combination. I’ve done orange creamsicle buttercream and orange creamsicle sugar cookie bars, so this was the only natural next step. This Orange Creamsicle Magic Shell would be a great addition to your 4th of July ice cream sundae bar.
This magic shell is made with smooth white chocolate, orange zest and those flecks of vanilla bean that I love so much. It’s pretty to look at and it even tastes pretty.
What flavor combination would you like to see in a magic shell? I have so many ideas in my head — it’s a little scary.
Verdict: LOVE this!
Husband’s take: A little weird for him — he’s pretty traditional and prefers chocolate magic shell. Unfortunately for him, he’s married to a food blogger.
Changes I would make: None are necessary but I can’t wait to play around with some new combinations.
Difficulty: So easy!
PS: I’m taking the rest of the week off from the blog (working at the hospital though…). Enjoy your week — Happy Independence Day! Have a fun and safe holiday and I’ll see you all back here next week.
