No, really. I need you to brace yourselves for this one. At least hold on to your hat.
I made magic shell. You know, like the syrup you pour on your ice cream and it hardens into a delightful chocolate coating? Made it.
I should back up.
Sometimes when I find myself walking slowly down the dairy aisle at my Publix, it's really because I'm casting sidelong glances into the ice cream freezers to my left. I will eat some ice cream. If it enters this house it will be eaten. And in a hurry. Soooo...sometimes I like to trick myself into thinking I'm consuming ice cream while still staying a tiny bit healthy by buying those chocolate covered frozen bananas. I'm not exactly sure what the brand is...but they're delicious. And they're ridiculously expensive! You get like, six banana halves for something like six bucks. Crazytown. So, while perusing Pinterest the other day, I saw this post about making chocolate-covered kiwi popsicles. I thought, noooo...can't be that easy. Then I tried it. And my life was transformed.
And it's so easy. So easy.
Take your bananas (preferably nice and ripe),
Whatever your method, melt the chips and oil until everything is nice and smooth.
Okay. Another long hour passed, and I tried again. This time? Perfect. Upon dipping, the chocolate freezes like pure magic. It really is incredible.
