Warm Weather Dessert

Here’s a fun, refreshing dessert I like to make for company especially in the summer with lots of kids around. This dessert can be made dairy or non-dairy. I make these non-dairy most of the time. You can substitute regular whipping cream for the non-dairy creamer if you prefer dairy.

Ingredients

  • Store-bought cones (one package)
  • 1 cup of Non-Dairy Creamer  (pareve)
  • ¼ cup of very cold water
  • 2 teaspoons of eatable lavender buds (optional, but makes it very special!)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons of powder or confectioners' sugar
  • ¾ cup non-dairy (pareve) chocolate chips
  • Mixed fresh berries

Directions

Whip in a cold mixing bowl until stiff peaks form

Before starting, put the small mixing bowl and the beaters  from your standing mixer in the refrigerator to chill. You want them good and cold to make this topping.

Melt the chocolate chips in a double broiler,  stirring constantly. Using a rubber spatula or a pastry brush, brush the chocolate around the top outer part all the way around the cone, about 1 inch. Set them on a plate to cool and harden. Then wash and cut a bowl of mixed berries.

Next in the chilled bowl of your standing mixer combine one cup of non-dairy creamer, ¼ cup of cold water and one tablespoon of lemon juice. Using the chilled beaters, beat on high speed for about 5 minutes or until soft peaks form.

Gradually beat in three tablespoons of powdered or confectionery sugar and the lavender if using; continue beating about 2 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Chill. The mixture stiffens after chilling. Stir to fluff it up before serving.

Now this part is fun for the kids, take a cone, spoon a dollop of whipped cream in the cone, then a layer of berries, then more whipped cream and finally a few berries on top! YUM!!
