"Choc Tops"

"Nikki made Choc Tops"

Ok so the best part of going to the movies is most likely the choc tops... here is your big chance to make your own at home for those movie nights with the family... Add some pop corn and the event is complete.
This is your opportunity to get creative and make your own ice cream from scratch (not difficult but it is a little time consuming) or you can buy a nice base flavour and add your own bits and bobs...
  1. Vanilla with crushed violet crumble bar...
  2. Vanilla with chopped cherry ripe bar...
  3. Caramel choc honeycomb ice cream...complete with bits...
  4. Strawberry wave with chopped glace cherries...
  5. Any flavour with mini M&M's...
  6. Chocolate with chopped pistachio nuts... you get the idea...
  • Choose the ice cream flavour and add your bits and bobs by first softening it slightly out of the fridge for a while and then evenly mix through the chopped or crushed additions and place it back into the freezer to reset it overnight prior to making the choc top cones.
  • Next day scoop into cones with flat bottoms so they will stand up for you...put back into the freezer for a couple of hours to firm up before attempting to choc coat them.
  • Melt over a double boiler (glass bowl over simmering water) 40 grams of copha and 100 grams of a good quality dark chocolate until melted... set aside for a few minutes to thicken and cool slightly.
  • Finally spin the ice cream cone gently until it goes hard which is almost instantly set aside for 1 minute and repeat this because you can't beat double dipped choc tops ... freeze for as long as the family will permit before devouring... this amount of chocolate is probably enough for about 6 cones.
"Popcorn"
"Poppin" Microwave popcorn... 2 minutes and the job is done and done with "Tripple butter flavour explosion"... what more can I say nothing could be simpler so why complicate life...
