I met a new knitter today at SnB, always fantastic to meet someone new. And her daughter (only 9 weeks old) is absolutely beautiful!
I found this recipe through About.com and it sounds really yummy, I might have to try it out. Yes, I know - American. It will require some converting.
Chocolate Mousse Witches Hats
1 3/4 cups heavy whipping cream, divided
1 cup milk chocolate chips
4 squares (1oz.each) semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 tsp. shortening
1 pkg (4 3/4 oz) chocolate sugar ice cream cones
12 thin Chocolate wafers (2 1/4 " diameter)
Instructions: In a small saucepan, bring 1/2 cup cream to a boil; remove from the heat. Stir in chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Let cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
In a mixing bowl, beat the remaining cream until stiff peaks form; fold into the chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate.
In microwave or double-boiler, melt semi-sweet chocolate and shortening. Stir until smooth. Dip pointed tips of ice cream cones a third of the way into melted chocolate; roll in sprinkles. Refrigerate until set.
Just before serving, spoon mousse into cones. Top each with a chocolate wafer. Invert onto a serving platter.
I'll have to start shopping for Halloween decorations, so hard to find, even though Halloween is becoming more popular here. I was thinking for Christmas (it's not far now) I'd go with a Nightmare Before Christmas theme. I think it would be highly applicable.
Make the most of the Post-Halloween sales, it'll be exciting and very, very fun!
