Chocolate sauce that instantly hardens into a shell when poured over ice cream is a classic treat, but could we engineer a better-tasting, homemade version?

When we sampled Smucker's Magic Shell over ice cream, we were impressed by the way it hardened upon contact but were less bowled over by its cloyingly sweet, mild chocolate taste. We set out to engineer a better-tasting homemade version that would please children and adults alike.

A quick review of the Magic Shell ingredients revealed that the "magic" was the third ingredient listed: coconut oil. Coconut oil is extremely high in saturated fat, which makes it solid at room temperature and brittle at cooler temperatures. Combining melted coconut oil in a 2:3 ratio with melted chocolate produced a satiny mixture that solidified into a perfect, shatteringly th...Read More »
- Disney Spoonful | Shine Food | Mon, Jun 17, 2013 5:10 PM EDT | CommentsThere's nothing better than a perfectly cooked ear of corn slathered with salty butter at a summertime party. My family waits all year long for corn season and when it hits we have corn on the cob at least once a week. My favorite way to cook corn is to grill it. Grilling it in the husk steams the corn and creates a delicious bite that bursts with sweetness. Top that warm ear of corn with a salty bright herb butter such as cilantro lime and you have the ultimate easy summer cookout side dish!
Healthy and delicious!
4 ears of corn in their husks
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
Zest of 1 lime, grated

While Martha may not be able to do your grocery shopping for you, she's happy to offer wisdom to help guide you through the aisles. The following tips will help you determine what to keep on hand and what to look for on food labels.
Look for natural versions, which have no added sugar and no hydrogenated oil -- a source of unhealthy trans fats.

Look for at least 3 grams of fiber and no more than 10 grams of sugar per serving (less is even better). And pay attention to the recommended serving size -- it's likely smaller than what you usually pour into your bowl.

Try some of our favorite festival snacks!
The foodies at Good Housekeeping and our sister site, Delish.com, have seen it all when it comes to good eats. From unconventional fried foods to childhood classics, these festival snacks from state fairs across the country will whet your appetite.
"People love fried food, and a fair or another big public celebration feels, I suppose, like a good time to indulge. What I think has become trendier during the past couple of years are fried sweets and nostalgic food items, things like jelly beans and Kool-Aid that people really enjoyed as kids. The jelly beans first appeared at the Massachusetts State Fair, also known as the Big E, in 2011 - the jelly beans were first dipped in funnel cake batter before being fried, and look almost like little doughnuts or fritters."
