Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

In a bowl combine first 5 ingredients (-salt) and then stir in the next 3 ingredients (egg whites - vanilla).

Step 3

Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Using your finger drew 4 (5 inch) circles on baking sheet. Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter onto each circle, spreading to edges of the circle using the back of your spoon. Bake for 5-8 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Loosen edges with a spatula and remove tacos from cookie sheet. Working quickly, drape each two over suspended wooden spoons, gently shaping into a shell; cool completely. (Shells are delicate and should be handled carefully when shaped). Repeat procedure with the remainder of the batter in order to form 8 shells.

Step 4

In a microwave safe bowl combine chocolate chips and oil and then microwave on high for 1 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring halfway through and stir until smooth. Spread 1 teaspoon of the chocolate mixture on the top third of the outside of both sides of the cooled shells and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of chopped peanuts. Spoon 1/3 cup ice-cream over the peanuts into each shell. Drizzle remaining chocolate mixture evenly over ice cream, and then sprinkle with remaining peanuts. Freeze for at least 30 minutes before serving.
