If you have been hanging around this week, you’ve seen that we’re in full blown five year old ice cream party mode. We’re down to the wire here. Today we worked on a number of things, but what I wanted to show you are our chocolate dipped ice cream cones. They’re really easy, and the kids had a lot of fun helping.
Are you intimidated by the thought of chocolate? These candy melts make it really easy. Making chocolate suckers with molds has been a hobby of mine since Jr. High. I used to give them as gifts at every holiday. All you do is boil water in a double boiler. Don’t have a double boiler? Just stick a glass bowl over a pot. Put water in the bottom pot and boil. Once the water reaches a boil, turn off the heat and put in the chocolate, stirring into melted. Once melted, it’s ready for use.
We had our toppings chosen – mini chocolate chips, coconut, Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips, Marshmallows and sprinkles. I dipped the cones in both white and dark chocolate. The girls then would sprinkle or set the topping on the cone. Then, you stick it straight in the refrigerator to let the chocolate firm up. It only takes minutes and you have your adorable cones ready for eating.
