Magic Shell

Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping

1 1/4 Cups Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil

Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave about 1 minute (depending on your microwave). Allow to sit a few minutes to allow the heat of the oil to melt the chocolate chips and then stir until smooth. It will be runny. Pour into a bottle. Store in the refrigerator (though in the summer it’s likely to stay liquidy unrefrigerated). To serve, heat the glass bottle (open cap) in the microwave for 30 seconds until liquid. Stir and continue heating at 30 second intervals if not liquid after the first 30 seconds. Pour over your favorite ice cream and in a few seconds you will see magic!

I assign SUSANNA LANDON to make this recipe and report back. I know you've got coconut oil laying around....

Zucchini Bread

I just sent this recipe to our cousin Tiffany and I thought I'd post it here too, because this bread is so fantastic and easy and I LOVE IT.

Grease and flour two loaf pans.

Mix together:
3 eggs
1 C. oil
2 t. vanilla
2 very packed cups grated zucchini
2 C. sugar
1/4 C. orange juice or water

Mix in separate bowl:
3 C. flour (I usually do half and half or 2 whole wheat and 1 white)
1 t. soda
1/4 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1 1/2 C. nuts (I usually use pecans)

Combine wet and dry mixtures. Pour into loaf pans and bake 50 min. at 350 degrees.

I assign MERILEE MEYER to make this recipe and report back. Your report is due in one week.
