Halloween is creeping up on us. The other day I was coming up with ideas for our annual family Halloween party and I came across chocolate witch hats so I thought I would share with you guys the recipe on how to do it. They look and taste yummy !! Like who doesn't like chocolate !!
What you will need ...
1/2 cup of chopped chocolate
1/3 cup of cream
12 pointy ice cream cones
12 round thin cookies
2 cups of melted chocolate(cooking chocolate)
What to do .......
(1) Make The Chocolate Ganache
The first thing we need is to make our filling for our hats so do to this we must pour the cream into a saucepan make sure the cooker is set at a high to medium heat and then let it simmer. Pour the hot cream all over the chopped chocolate and gently whisk until the chocolate melts until the mixture is smooth. Once that is done place your mixture(ganache) in the fridge and cover with cling wrap leave for an hour.
(2) Prep The Witch hats
While your waiting on your ganache to cool its the prefect opportunity for you to prep you cones. You need to cut the cones in half we only need the top part of the cone use a knife to cut it and cut it slowly so that it doesn't break.
(3) Fill the witches hats
Once the ganache has cooled and is like a peanut butter texture you can place it in the inside of the cone using a piping bag. Overfill the cones so that there is extra coming out of the top as it will allow the cone to stick to the cookie. once you filled all the cones place them in the fridge and leave for another hour.
For the coating you need to melt cooking chocolate you can do this by placing a glass bowl over a hot saucepan of boiling water and allow the chocolate to slowly melt. Once you have the chocolate melted you can then coat the cones to do this you can dip the cones into the chocolate or you can use a spoon to cover the cones in chocolate.once you have coated all of the witches hats you can leave them to cool for about 15 minutes in the fridge.
Once the witches hats are cool you can decorate them how ever you like. once you have them decorated they are ready to eat !!
