- Some wax paper, parchment paper, or a silpat baking mat
- Some Popsicle sticks
Step 2: Preparing the Slices
- Place the slices (slightly separated) on a plate or on a pan lined with either wax paper, parchment paper, or a silpat baking mat.
- Insert the popsicle sticks through the crust and about 2 inches into the filling. (If the crust starts to crack, pierce it first with a knife before inserting the sticks.)
- Place the slices into the freezer untill it is frozen solid
Step 3: Dipping the Slices
The best thing to use to dip the slices in is going to be a taller container that is kind of narrow, such as a large yogurt container or a larger Chinese takeout container that soup may have come in. Fill it with the homemade magic shell (I made a triple recipe) and just dip the slices in the mix. The nice thing about the magic shell is that you can make the shell as thick or as thin as you want, and since it is magic shell it will just be about a minute or two until it is ready to eat.
Enjoy your tasty treat and try some different flavor combinations if you want.
