You can't have a New Year's party without noise horns, at least in my house. That's primarily because the little ones in our family love to annoy us by blowing them incessantly every 5 minutes. If the kids in your family are like mine, make them these edible "noise" horns instead. The only sound you'll hear is crunch.

Melt the chocolate

Place the chocolate in a large Mason jar. Melt in the microwave for about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until completely melted. Be sure to stir the mixture every 30 seconds to prevent scorching.


Dip the cones in the white chocolate

Holding the pointy end of the cone, carefully dip into the white chocolate. Then roll the cone all around to evenly coat the entire cone, all the way up to where you are holding it.

Place on a wire cooling rack over a large piece of parchment paper.


Add sugars and sprinkles

Add colored sprinkles to the cones while the chocolate is still wet, liberally coat all around the entire cone.

Let dry and then add licorice

Let the cones dry. Using a skewer, place a hole in the center of the licorice so it slides on the top of the cone. Carefully attach to the top of the cones.
