I am so disappointed. I was standing in the queue at the supermarket and gazing into space when I saw a display of ice cream cones. I thought what brilliant witches hats they would make. I could picture them in my head. At the time it seemed like a completely new idea no one else had ever thought of. I bopped back around the supermarket and bought the ingredients feeling really proud of myself. Of course as soon as I searched on google I saw a whole load of witches hats made out of ice cream cones *sigh*. There is a large chance I saw them someone else and forgot (probably Pinterest)
Anyway it’s still a brilliant recipe to make with young children because it looks great and doesn’t need any cooking.
- ice cream cones
- chocolate biscuits (digestives work well)
- melted chocolate
- Sweets for decoration
We dipped the cone in the chocolate and stuck it to the biscuit. Then left for a bit.
Dribble the cone in chocolate. It doesn’t matter if they get a bit messy. You could also use black icing.
Decorate with the sweets. We used green and orange smarties and little little stars. They would look really good for a Halloween party.
We were just making them for ourselves and so presentation didn’t matter. These are the twins’ finished witches hats. Rose decided she didn’t want to make a witches hat she just decorated her biscuit with as many sprinkles as she could fit. Charlotte made the hat in the background and it looks really great.
