Choc top ice creams

Who doesn't love a choc top at the cinema?

In a week we are having a little shindig here with an outdoor movie for the kids. So I've been working on my cinema snackage. This afternoon's triumph: teeny tiny choc tops.

These guys are a winner hands down, not only because of that great crunch you get when you bite into them but also because you can have them made before the event.

Extra awesome thing about them? They are easy peasy to make.

The key seems to be keeping them from melting while you're making them.  I just scooped some slightly soft ice-cream into flat bottomed cones before quickly whacking them back into the freezer while I whipped up the chocolate topping. 

Melt 100 grams of dark chocolate and 40 grams of copha together in the microwave. Let it sit for a few minutes to slightly thicken up before quickly dunking each ice-cream into the mix. I wouldn't do more than two or three at a time, you don't want melty bits running down the sides.

Once they've had a really good chance to go solid in the freezer you can pop them into individual plastic bags then keep them frozen until you're ready to whip them out for movie night.
