Creme Horns

I have always loved creme horns. I finally found some at a bakery here but unfortunately like most things from the bakery here in Saudi they were severally freezer burnt, ugh. So I decided to make my own, they were quite simple. If Dream Whip by Kraft is not avaliable where you are them use chocolate mousse or even whip cream. You will be able to find the metal cones at most kitchen shops and if you live in Saudi they are really all over. I am sure you could even make your own cones out of aluminum foil if you need to.

1 packet ready made puff pastry
1 sachet Dream Whip
1/2 cup cold milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 cup chocolate sprinkles

1. Pre-heat oven to 400F. Carefully roll out puff pastry and cut into long strips 3cm wide. Starting from the bottom of the metal cone carefully wrap pastry around. Repeat until all cone are done. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or baking mat.

2. Bake cones wrapped with pastry in oven until golden (5-15 minutes). Remove from the oven and carefully pull the cone out. Allow to cook.

3. In a large bowl add Dream Whip, cocoa powder, milk and vanilla. With a hand Mixer beat on medium speed until peaks form (about 3-5 minutes). Place in refrigerator until cones are cooled. Fill the creme into a pastry bag then carefully fill each cone. Sprinkle chocolate sprinkles on creme.

Yields: 20 creme horns
