Festive, Thanksgiving Teepee Desserts
So you spend all day slaving over an amazing Thanksgiving dinner… and then your kids eat one roll. or is that just my girls? Their pickiness isn’t limited to dinner; the girls will not touch pie. More for me! Last year, I made these festive teepees for them for dessert, and they were over the moon. In fact, it’s been requested that I make them again and bring them over to my aunt and uncle’s for all of the cousins. Ready to wow those guests aged 6 and under?
What you need:
- ice cream cones
- baking chocolate
- mini pretzel sticks, broken into different lengths
- festive sprinkles
- parchment paper
What you do:
- Start by melting down your chocolate. I like to microwave in 20 second increments, stirring in between.
- Cover your work area with parchment paper – this is easy, but messy project.
- While the chocolate is melting, I carefully break the tips of the cones off.
- Dip the wide part of the cone into your melted chocolate, and tap off any excess. Dip into festive sprinkles, and set the cone on the parchment paper to dry.
- Repeat for the remaining cones.
- Once the bottoms have dried enough to handle (about 15 minutes), re-melt the chocolate.
- Dip the tips of the cones into the melted chocolate.
- Press the pretzel sticks into the tops, like teepee posts, and decorate with more sprinkles.
- Let dry/harden overnight, and enjoy!
