These fun noisemakers are beautiful, fun to make and will keep the little ones entertained well into midnight. Plus, they’re edible!
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.
Edible party horns for New Year’s Eve
Slightly adapted from Hungry Happenings
Yields about 12 party horns
- 12 ice cream sugar cones
- About 3-1/2 cups white chocolate
- Silver and gold decorating sugar
- Multicolored nonpareils
- Red chewy licorice or Tootsie Rolls
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.
