Method

  • 1
    Place each cone in a tall glass. Use a little scrunched paper towel around the cones to help them stand upright. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on MEDIUM (50%), stirring every 30 seconds with a metal spoon, for 3 minutes or until melted and smooth. Stand for 5 minutes. Stir in marshmallows and Smarties. Spoon 2 tablespoons of chocolate mixture into each cone. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set.

    Place 1 cup candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on MEDIUM (50%), stirring every 30 seconds with a metal spoon, for 2 minutes or until melted and smooth. Stir in 2 teaspoons vegetable oil, if necessary, to form a smooth spreadable mixture. Use a palette knife to spread the outside of each cone with candy mixture. Place cones, top-side down, on a wire rack set over a tray. Sprinkle all over with sprinkles. Set aside for 30 minutes or until set.

    Place 1 fruit stick on a chopping board. Using picture as a guide and being careful not to cut all the way through, cut along the grooves, starting 3cm in at 1 end, to form 6 x 3cm long strips. Carefully pull them apart to form stalks. Repeat with remaining fruit sticks. Return cones to tall glasses to stand upright. Place remaining candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on MEDIUM (50%), stirring halfway through with a metal spoon, for 1 minute or until melted and smooth. Stir in 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, if necessary, to form a smooth spreadable mixture. Spoon into a snap-lock bag. Snip off 1 corner. Pipe mixture into the top of each cone. Lightly press 1 fruit stick piece into centre to create a stalk. Stand for 30 minutes or until set. Serve.
