Summary

Yield 12 cookies
Preparation time 1 hours+30 minutes refrigeration
Cooking time 15 minutes
Main Ingredient Chocolate

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose/plain flour
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 60g butter, chopped
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 375g packet milk chocolate melts, melted
  • 12 mini ice-cream cones
  • 1/3 cup M&Ms minis

Instructions

  1. In a food processor combine the flour, sugar, cocoa and butter until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add egg yolk. Continue mixing until the dough just comes together, adding 2 teaspoons of cold water if necessary.
  2. Turn pastry onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until just smooth. Shape into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced.
  4. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Roll out pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Using a 5.5cm cutter, cut 12 rounds from dough. Place rounds, 3cm apart, on prepared trays. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden. Cool on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Line a tray with baking paper. Using a small pastry brush, spread a little melted chocolate onto the top of 1 biscuit. Working quickly, dip the outside of 1 cone into chocolate, turning to coat all over. Stick the cone onto the biscuit.
  7. Place onto prepared tray. Working quickly, decorate cone with M&Ms. Repeat with remaining biscuits, melted chocolate, ice-cream cones and M&Ms.
  8. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until set. Tie ribbon around base of each hat. Serve.
