“Trick or treat?” is the magic spell that children utter in order to fill their pockets with sugary treats on Halloween night. Halloween is the perfect opportunity to create fun dessert recipes with children, like figurines or symbols that represent this event. This year, we bring you witches hats with an apple twist! This playful recipe offers a crispy, crunchy and creamy surprise. Some of the PinKids® apples are cooked and then used to make a light and creamy mousse, while others are finely diced to provide a refreshing crunch. Happy Halloween! Find out more

  • 6 ice cream cones
  • 6 round wafers
  • Orange and black sprinkles

Preparation

  1. Cover a baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Grease the paper
  3. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie
  4. Paint the melted chocolate onto the outside of the ice cream cones and on both sides of the round wafers.
  5. Place the cones (upside down) and wafers on the tray and chill for ten minutes.
  6. Remove the cones from the refrigerator and place them, the right way up, in a glass, so as to fill them.
  7. Fill each cone with a dessert spoon of diced apple.
  8. Fill the remaining space with the mousse up to 0.5 cm from the top of the cone. Chill.
  9. Use the remaining honey to stick one round wafer to the top of the cone, sealing the hole and creating the brim of the hat. If necessary, use a small brush to seal the joints with chocolate.
  10. Brush the brim of the hat with the remaining chocolate and add sprinkles. Refrigerate for 1 hr at least.
