(Curious George and the Ice Cream Surprise would also be a great book to go along with this treat!)
I made some monkey ice cream cones to go along with the book. They're made from chocolate ice cream, vanilla wafers, food coloring, and edible eyes.
I actually have a stash of edible eyes now, which I love! If you make your own, you can make them any size and they're a lot cheaper than buying them. They aren't quite as perfect, but I actually like them better that way.
I started with a tutorial from Instructables, but then of course, I made them even easier. I'm terrible at following directions.
Wilton's Meringue Powder and this recipe scaled to 16 servings because I thought it was safer than using uncooked egg whites. Pipe small dots of icing onto sheets of wax paper and let harden.
|Can you tell I'm not a perfectionist? My husband would've had those things evenly spaced and lined up in neat little rows.|
