Chocolate Magic Shell is so incredibly easy to make. Just two ingredients and two minutes and you have a chocolate sauce that hardens on your ice cream! Young and old alike will love being able to crack through that chocolate shell with their spoon to get to the good stuff – the ice cream!
Recently, I was lucky enough to visit the Safeway test kitchen where I got to spend the day learning about and eating Open Nature® products. To say I was impressed with everything I tried and everything the brand stands for would be a serious understatement.
Open Nature® recently added two new products: Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Ice Cream and Open Nature® Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert, available in the Portland area exclusively at Safeway stores. Have you seen them yet? Here’s a little info about these delicious frozen treats:
Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Ice Creams are a guilt-free indulgence. If you’re looking for a dessert that is low in calories but has a high protein content, this is for you. Scandal-Less has between 60-80% less fat than regular ice cream and 40-50% less calories than regular ice cream (between 240 and 370 calories per pint).
If you’re looking for an outstanding dairy free option, Open Nature® Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert, made with either cashew or almond milk, is a great non-dairy alternative to traditional ice cream.
These frozen desserts don’t need anything extra to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings, but I’m never one to turn down toppings! This chocolate magic shell is perfect because you can drizzle a little (or a lot) on top for that chocolate goodness that goes great with any frozen dessert. I’m always a fan of adding things like fresh fruit, nuts, or even toasted shredded coconut as well. I’m all about enjoying all sorts of different flavors and textures.
Don’t be afraid to forego the bowl entirely. Since Open Nature® Scandal-Less Light Ice Cream and Open Nature® Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert both come in pint sized packages, you can easily add whatever toppings you want straight into the container. Grab a couple spoons and go watch a movie!
