Guest Post: Nutella Magic Shell by Dinners, Dishes and Desserts

by Erin

Do you know Erin? No I am not talking about myself Erin, but the Erin over on Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts! I really enjoy Erin’s blog because she loves sweets but tries to throw in some healthy-ness too sometimes – that’s pretty much how I live my life haha. I have had my heart swoon over many of her recipes, such as her Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal, Homemade Goldfish Crackers, and Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies. And today I am happy to announce that she has brought yet another noteworthy recipe over to share with you!


Hi!  I am Erin from Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts!  In case you don’t know me, I am a mom to a 7 year old little boy.  I love to bake, but also need to balance it out with healthy food too!  Would love to have you stop by and say Hi.

I am super excited to be here today.  Erin, is such a sweet person, and always has such great recipes on her site.  I do know that she is a huge fan of Nutella.  We have that in common, as well as our name, so I know we would be good friends in real life.

I don’t know about where you live, but here this summer is shaping up to be a hot one!  Ice cream, Popsicles, No Bake cookies…they are a must.  I need toppings on my ice cream.  I like to switch up those toppings frequently as well.  Magic Shell was always a favorite growing up.

There was just something about it that was, well, magic.  But did you know you could make your own, at home?  It only takes 2 ingredients.  I made Peanut Butter Magic Shell last summer, and it was so much fun.  This year I had to see if Nutella would work.  It does!!  Next up …. Biscoff!  Tell me that wouldn’t be great on ice cream.

Nutella Magic Shell

1/3 cup Nutella

3 Tbls Butter (or coconut oil)

Melt together Nutella and Butter in a microwave safe dish.  Allow to cool for a few minutes.  Drizzle over ice cream, and watch it harden!

Note: Coconut Oil works just as well.  It just gives it a coconuty flavor.

Also. May have just realized “simple” and “easy” are synonyms. Meant to type “Quick and easy.” Damn you, Monday.

Oooooh, I have been meaning to try magic shell but I keep forgetting to buy coconut oil. I didn’t know it worked with butter too, awesome!
