Ingredients Needed:

Items Needed:

  • Cone
  • Saucepan
  • Heatproof Bowl
  • Spatula
  • Knife

Step 1: Prepare Cone

Get a cone or assemble one using cardboard/thick paper. 

Step 2: Melt Chocolate

Heat water in a saucepan until simmering. Place chocolate melts in a heatproof bowl over the saucepan, making sure the base of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Stir until chocolate melts. Remove bowl from pan.

Step 3: Attach Meringues to Cone

To assemble the tower, dip a spatula/knife into the melted chocolate and place it onto the bottom of the meringue. Attach the meringue to the bottom edge of the cone, holding in place for 10-20 seconds. (Optional: Place edible pearl garnishment on base before placing meringues.) Repeat to make a row of meringues around the base of the cone.

Tip: At the last space in each row, if a meringue does not fit, take a knife and trim/lightly scrape the edge of a meringue until it fits. Repeat until rows cover the cone and top with a meringue or satin bow.
