Hallow’s Eve is almost upon us. And it’s the perfect time for a Sunday night bewitching project. My daughter and I decided that it was just the time to make little witch like ice cream cones for the season.
My daughter is co-writing this blog and announced: “October is the best time to make really cool stuff made out of candy and it can be lots of things like witches, knights, monsters, vampires (of course!) and skeletons too. If you don’t like candy, you could use vegetables instead. But we’ve never tried that version. The Candy version is probably better for kids. Sometimes if you work and you need to make something really sugary for your friends and family. You can make stuff like this!”
“Now, how do you make it? First, get a scoop of ice cream that is very cold and put it on a big plate. Next, get an icecream cone and draw on it with black icing. Make black eyes and a mouth on the ice cream scoop, with blood dripping down a chin with a skeleton next to it.”

- 8 chocolate or vanilla sugar ice cream cones
- 1 tube chocolate decorating gel
- 8 thin round chocolate wafers (2-1/4 inch diameter)
- 1 quart pistachio, mint or ice cream of your choice
- 15 shoestring black licorice
- 16 semisweet chocolate chips
- 8 candy corn candies
- Red decorating gel
- Coat edge of ice cream cones with decorating gel; set aside.
- Drop eight scoops of ice cream onto a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Cut licorice into strips for hair; press into ice cream. Add chocolate chips for eyes and candy corn for noses. Pipe red gel for mouths.
- Flatten scoops slightly to hold hats in place; position hats over heads. Freeze for at least 2 hours or until hats are set. Wrap each in plastic wrap after solidly frozen.
Bottom line: You’ve got yourself a really snazzy dessert that is fun for kids to make too. Evidence below.
