Witch’s Cauldron Sundae

Chocolate Witchs Cauldron

I love Halloween.  I think I actually enjoy it more now than I did when my children were younger.  It seemed like when they were younger all the time and energy I had to devote to Halloween went towards making and putting together Halloween costumes for my children.  Yes, I was one of those mother’s that always made their children’s costumes.  No store bought costumes here.  I was usually the room mom so all my party planning energy went towards that.

Now that I don’t have to make costumes for my kids Jim and I have started dressing up.  It’s so fun and I wish we had done it years ago.  One year we were Mary Poppins and Bert and then there was Cruilla Deville and Horace

and we’ve already got this year figured out but it’s a surprise!

And now I put my party planning energy towards our annual Halloweenie Roast.  I love hosting this yearly event for all my neighbors.  It is always an opportunity to try out some new fun, spooky Halloween treat and this year we may just be enjoying some Witch’s Cauldron Sundae.

Chocolate Witchs Cauldron

These little chocolate cauldrons are so fun to make!  You will need some small balloons and melting chocolate.

Wash your balloons before you start and then blow them to the size you want your cauldrons to be.  Melt your chocolate and then dip the balloon into the chocolate.  The first time I did it I didn’t dip the balloon in far enough.  You want the chocolate to come up more than half way to make a nice cauldron shape.  Place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and allow to set up.  You can place them in the refrigerator.

Chocolate Cauldrons

After they are set up, melt some green melting chocolate and use a clean brush to apply the chocolate to the edges of the cauldron.  Be sure your chocolate is not too hot as it will melt the edges of the cauldron. A little melting is o.k.

Allow that to set up again in the refrigerator.  When you are ready to party just fill them with your favorite green ice cream.  I used mint chocolate chip but lime sherbet would work too.  I bought some chocolate rocks at the bulk food section of my grocery store to place around the cauldron and then a sprinkle of orange decorating sugar on top.  How cute is that!

It’s almost too cute to eat but you’ll have a lot of fun eating!
