A box of store-bought ice creams be­comes a feast for the eyes with this too- easy trick.

Per six ice creams, you will need: ✤ 340g coloured candy melts (avail­able from spe­cial­ity bak­ing stores. You can also use white cho­co­late melts, and colour them with pow­dered food colour­ing) ✤ 50g veg­etable short­en­ing (ap­prox­i­mately) ✤ Dec­o­ra­tions of your choice ✤ Bak­ing pa­per 1. Us­ing a dou­ble boiler, gen­tly heat the candy melts and short­en­ing un­til pourable. Aim for a maple syrup-like con­sis­tency, thin­ning with more short­en­ing if needed. Add food colour­ing if us­ing. 2. Pour the cho­co­late into a tall glass, big enough to fit an ice cream held up­side-down. 3. Working quickly, re­move the ice creams from the freezer and dip them into the glass. Al­low ex­cess cho­co­late to drip off, then place care­fully onto a sheet of bak­ing pa­per. 4. Dec­o­rate to your theme, then place the ice creams back in the freezer. If us­ing fresh flow­ers, place these onto each ice cream just be­fore serv­ing.
