Did You Know?

A single chocolate chip can give you enough energy to walk 150 feet!

Let’s Get Started!

1   Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2   Stand the taco shells up in the loaf pan.

3   Heat the taco shells for 5 minutes, or until they are crisp and look
     light golden brown. Using the pot holders, carefully take the
     loaf pan out of the oven. Let the taco shells to cool in the pan
     for 10 minutes.

4   Leave the taco shells in the pan. Use the spoon to put 1 teaspoon
     of chocolate chips into each taco shell. Set aside the remaining
     chocolate chips — we will use them in Step 6.

5   Place a ¼cup of ice cream into each taco shell on top of the
     chocolate chips. Put the pan of tacos into the freezer for
     15 minutes.

6   While the tacos are in the freezer, put the remaining chocolate
     chips into the microwave-safe dish. Microwave the chips on High
     for 1 to 2 minutes, until the chocolate is smooth when you stir it
     with the spoon.

7   Take the tacos out of the freezer. Use the spoon to drizzle
     the melted chocolate over the top of each taco. Then sprinkle
     the chopped nuts over the chocolate. Freeze the tacos again
     for at least 10 minutes so the chocolate gets hard.

8   Top with chocolate syrup and serve.

The Peanut Wizard

In the early 1900s, Dr. George Washington Carver,
known as the “father of the modern peanut industry,” discovered more than 300 uses for the peanut plant.

Ice Cream

Chef Shiri Says…

One of the many special things about the peanut is its long shelf life. This means that peanuts can stay fresh on your shelf for months, and even longer when kept in the refrigerator.

Prayer Pointers From

Buzz the Brachos Bee 

The words “‘Melech haolam” mean, “King of the world.” When you say these words in a berachah, you are saying that you know that Hashem created the food you are about to eat, and He also is in charge of where it goes and how it gets there. That means that Hashem knows who is going to eat every piece of food.
