Ice Cream with Homemade Magic Shell and Bammer's Jammers
It all started when I saw photos and a recipe for Bammer’s Jammers on Bam’s Kitchen. BAM is one of my favorite food bloggers and she's good at it, carefully researching every recipe and testing them on her husband and teenage boys.
I knew I had to have it! Who (not me!) can resist a simple mixture of strawberries, cranberries, freshly grated ginger and honey?
Hmm, English muffins and peanut butter came quickly and persistently to mind.
A week later I finally remembered to pick up frozen strawberries at the supermarket. At the moment I’m typing this sentence (2:20 PM ET), the temperature has finally crept up to 24-degreesF. A delightful, sunny BRRR…. so no fresh, local strawberries this month.
Strawberries in hand, I quickly whipped up Bammer’s Jammers and fell in love after one taste straight from the pan. And, I was right. A perfect fit with an English muffin and peanut butter.
The first photo was ordinary and I wanted something with zing. That’s why the jar is tipped over and Bammer’s Jammers is swiftly running out of the jar. Quick, click!!
A few days later, it occurred to me that Bammer’s Jammers would taste good on a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Chocolate flashed through my mind, too. That’s how I came to search out a recipe for Homemade Magic Shell. I’ve made homemade magic shell before, but none of the recipes I tried inspired me to make it a second time.
This time, however, I’m totally sold and this recipe for Homemade Magic Shell from Instructables is a forever-keeper. Here’s why:
1. It’s made with coconut oil.
2. It only has two ingredients (for the basic recipe).
3. It hardens beautifully upon making contact with the ice cream.
Vanilla ice cream, Homemade Magic Shell and Bammer’s Jammers. “Nothing could be finer…”
