Step 1: You Will Need

Ice Cream
Smuckers Magic Shell Ice Cream Coating

Toppings of choice, nuts, sprinkles, etc. (*Optional)

Baking Sheet
Small Cookie Dough Scoop
Ramekin or very small bowl
Waxed Paper
Mini Muffin Liners

Step 2: Scoop

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

Scoop out desired number of ice cream balls. Pack the scoop tight.

Place on a baking sheet and return to freezer for 15 - 30 minutes to make firm.

Step 3: Dip

Fill a ramekin or small bowl with enough Magic Shell to dip Ice Cream balls in.

Insert a toothpick in the bottom of ice cream ball and dip into Magic Shell. Hold over bowl until Magic Shell is set or roll in topping and hold until dry. About 30 - 45 seconds. You may want to dip the ice cream more than once for a thicker coating.

*Note: You can also use two different flavors of Magic Shell. I like to double dip in the Peanut Butter then Chocolate but with the recent Peanut Butter recalls I decided not to take a chance. Be sure to allow one flavor dry and harden completely; refreeze a few minutes before adding the second flavor.

Step 4: Serve

Center and press toothpick through bottom of mini muffin cup and pull toothpick out.

Return finished Bon Bons to baking sheet and freeze again for 15 minutes to firm up the ice cream.

Place in airtight container until ready to eat.

Those look fantastic! I may try some with a nuts/coconut mix.

Oh Canida that sounds wonderful. I am allergic to coconut so you will have to let me know how they came out and maybe send a picture so we can see how they look.

Magic shell! Genius. SO much easier than termpering chocolate.

Yes and it dries faster too, saves lots of time.

Yum! Fun idea for summer evenings too!

DebH57 made it! (author)DebH572009-02-15

Yes but you have to work faster in the summer because of the melt ratio.
