Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones

Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones for the kids to celebrate the Chicago Blackhawks win and parade.

 

 

Monday was my son’s birthday he turned 11 and brought some awesome luck to the Chicago Blackhawks that night because they won the Stanley Cup for the third time in six years and won it at home for the first time since 1938. (It’s perfectly okay for me to believe he gave the his birthday luck for the win!) Today is the parade and the city is a madhouse! Hordes of people are lining the parade route and my 22-year-old is one of them. I would be too but with crowds that size I can’t bring my three youngest. I fear someone would get lost. SO since they were sad about missing the parade (My daughter wanted to yell “Oh captain, my captain!” to Jonathan Toews.) I made them some celebratory Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones to eat while watching the parade on TV.

These are super easy to make but you will need some time for them to dry so make sure you have plenty of time.

To make your own Stanley Cup Ice Cream Cones complete with fondant pucks you will need:

Cake cones

Pairing Knife

Wilton Color Mist in silver

Chocolate Melts or Cubes

Disposable Pastry Bag

Small Package of Black Fondant (Walmart carries small Wilton packages in their craft aisle.)

Ice Cream, Yogurt or Custard of your choice

To start making your cone you will need two cake cones. Cut the top large section and part of the bottom off of one of the cones using a sharp pairing knife. The easiest way to do this is not just to cut straight through but cut and rotate the cone so that it only cuts the current section as you turn it. It comes out more even that way.

Next, you will spray the pieces with the Wilton Color Mist in silver. You can do each piece alone or fit them together and then spray them to use less spray. Let the pieces dry completely before handling.

Melt a small amount of white chocolate in the microwave according to package instructions in the disposable pastry bag. Once melted snip the tip off of the pastry bag and squeeze some of it into the smaller end on the halved cone.

While the chocolate is still melted fit it onto the upside down full cone. This will be the “”glue” that holds the pieces together and prevents ice cream melting everywhere.

While the chocolate is setting you will need to work the black fondant to soften it up. Once you have it to a workable state roll and flatten it with your hand. Then using a small fondant cutter, or the large end of a pastry tip cut out your “pucks”.

Now you can scoop up your favorite frozen treat into the Stanley Cup Cones and top with the fondant pucks and they are ready to be enjoyed. While not quite the real thing it does taste much better!

Congratulations Chicago Blackhawks on an awesome season!

 


Fun Frankenstein Rice Krispies Treats For Halloween

by Jennifer Wieland
Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats

Most of the time baking is my form of relaxation and decompressing from the stresses of life but, sometimes the kids like to help me bake or they like to have project time to make a kid’s creation. I decided that a simple and fun idea for Halloween would be to make some festive, seasonal Rice Krispies Treats. So one day while strolling around the craft store I spotted some black and vibrant green colored Wilton Candy Melts and I thought they would be perfect for making the Rice Krispies Treats into some fun Frankenstein Rice Krispies Treats for Halloween.

The chocolates were the key to this idea bet then I realized I would need a few other items so I began searching the Wilton Halloween section. There I located some green and yellow candy eyes and some jumbo bug sprinkles. The bug sprinkles came in black and green too and since the actually looked like centipedes I decided that if only part of it was visible that it would work as Frankenstein’s bolts nicely.

These were so much fun to make and the kids had a blast creating their own versions of Frankenstein and then of course gobbling them up. This is definitely a kid friendly project and it would also make a great activity at a child’s Halloween party. You could setup already sliced Rice Krispies Treats either homemade or packaged with bowls of melted chocolate for dipping. Finish the activity table off with pastry bags of melted chocolate for more decorating and candies, sprinkles and other fun items to help create your own Frankensteins with.

Seriously though, didn’t these come out just adorable? They are definitely fun and festive for Halloween but easy enough for even kids to be able to help with.

Using an offset spatula cover the tops of the Rice Krispies Treats with the melted vibrant green candy melts. Place the candy eyes. Then snip the ends of the pastry bags. One should be a small opening and the other larger. Use the large opening pastry bag to pipe the hair on and use the small opening pastry bag to pipe a mouth. Dip the ends of the sprinkles in the vibrant green chocolate and press into the sides of the Rice Krispies Treats to look like bolts.
