Equipment

  • Baking Sheet
  • wax or parchment paper
  • two microwave-safe bowls

Ingredients

  • 12 ice cream cones
  • 1 bag green candy melts
  • 1 bag white candy melts or white almond bark
  • 2 to 4 teaspoons coconut oil or vegetable shortening
  • 12 marshmallows
  • 12 frosted cupcakes homemade from your favorite recipe or store-bought

Instructions

  • Prepare a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, place the green candy melts. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continuing heating in 30-second increments, stirring well after each. If the candy melts overheat or is not smooth enough to pour, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of coconut oil or vegetable shortening and stir well.
  • With your hand inside the ice cream cone, spoon the green over the cone. Tap gently to allow the excess to drip back into the bowl.
  • While the green candy melts are still wet, top the cone with a marshmallow.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, place the white candy melts. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continuing heating in 30-second increments, stirring well after each. If the candy melts overheat or is not smooth enough to pour, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of coconut oil or vegetable shortening and stir well.
  • Holding the cone, spoon the white around the rim of the ice cream cone. Tap gently to allow the excess to drip back into the bowl. Allow to dry completely.
  • Place on the prepared baking sheet to dry. When ready, place one elf hat on each cupcake.

Notes

If you are traveling somewhere with these cupcakes, you can assemble them when you get there.
Save time by using store-bought frosted cupcakes.
You can use different colored candy melts to change up your elf hat color.
Make sure to apply the marshmallows while the candy melts are still wet.
