Kids Cooking with Chef Shiri – Nutty Ice Cream Tacos


Kids – See if you have what it takes to become a Junior Chef!

Adult Supervision Required.

Utensils Needed:

9×5-inch loaf pan

Pot holders

Measuring cups and spoons



Small microwavable dish


8 mini taco shells

⅓ cup milk chocolate chips

1-pint vanilla ice cream (or flavor of your choice)

3 tablespoons chopped nuts

Chocolate syrup

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 potholders, 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 ¼ cup 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.

Makes 8 Tacos!

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.


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.
