I hosted New Year’s Eve at my house this year. I wanted to make and easy but creative dessert for my boys and my nephews to enjoy. I saw an idea for making little chocolate cups to hold ice cream. We made mini ice cream sundaes that looked like cupcakes!
You will need:
Chocolate Candy Melt or Chocolate Chips (I used candy melt since I had an abundance leftover!)
Aluminum Cupcake Baking Cups or Foil (I used foil since I forgot the cupcake thingies at the store!)
Fixings for Ice Cream Sundae
Line a cupcake pan with foil or use the aluminum cupcake holders.
Melt the chocolate melt in the microwave at 50% power for 1 minute. Stir and then heat for an additional 30 seconds at 50% power. Keep doing this until the chocolate is smooth.
Poor a small amount of chocolate into each cupcake holder. With the back of a spoon brush the chocolate up the sides of the pan. You might want to wait a couple of minutes for the chocolate to cool and brush the chocolate up the sides again. Place pan in the refrigerator.
After an hour, remove the foil from the pan. Carefully peel the foil away from the chocolate. Store in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.
I had leftover chocolate so I dipped pretzel rods! Just dip the pretzels in chocolate and then place on waxed paper. Use sprinkles to make them festive. Place them in the refrigerator to harden.
Do you have any quick and easy dessert recipes? I would love to hear about them!
