How to make Sugar Cone Witch Hats!

  1. Fill each cone with about six gummy worms. Make sure you tuck the worms into each cavity completely. Set aside.
  2. Divide icing in half and color one bowl orange and one bowl green. Place each color into a separate pastry bag and snip the tip about 1/4″.
  3. Using the orange icing, pipe it around the bottom of each sugar ice cream cone and press a cookie into the base to seal the cone and create the brim. Repeat until all cones are complete.
  4. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and place a cooling rack inside the pan. Set the cone with candy on the cooling rack.

  1. Add chocolate bark into a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave according to package directions. Using a spoon, pour melted chocolate over each cone, allowing it to drizzle down to the bottom.
  2. Once you’ve covered each cone, turn the pan around and check to ensure you’ve covered each side, I missed several spots on my cones. Let stand to harden completely, about 45-60 minutes.
  3. Using the green frosting, pipe a band around the bottom of each cone. Add Halloween sprinkles.
  4. Using orange frosting, pipe a buckle on each band. Let stand for the frosting to harden to the touch.
  5. Serve immediately or cover and store at room temperature until ready to serve.

What type of candy to stuff inside the Ice Cream Cone Witch Hats?

We like holiday-friendly treats that you typically see around this time of the year. This includes gummy worms, candy corn, and little gummy or candy eyes.

Chocolate is always a welcome treat, so M&Ms and Reeses Pieces are easy to stuff as a surprise inside. 

Regarding the outside of the witch hat cones, black sanding sugar, chocolate kisses, and candy eyeballs all made fun treat decorations. The point is to have FUN!

Do the type of cookies matter?

I had store brand chips ahoy and name brand chips ahoy, and the store brand had very jagged edges to the cookie, so I used the name brand.

I don’t know if adding chocolate to the irregular cookies would have mattered; it probably would have smoothed itself out, but it’s worth noting.

I did try pouring the chocolate like in the video, but I ended up drizzling with a spoon. I liked having a little more control. I feel like you have to guide the chocolate down the cone because if you don’t, it just follows the existing path from the first pour. 

I tried dipping them, too, but I wouldn’t say I liked doing that. I still had to add chocolate to the bottom since my bowl of chocolate wasn’t deep enough, and I would have gotten my fingers all chocolatey!
