Pour the mixture into a prepared muffin/cupcake tray.Sprinkle the sugar and mixed spice that you mixed up before, on top of the cupcakes. This will give them a nice crunch on top!
Place in oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
Allow cupcakes to cool before turning them out onto wire cooling rack. Let cool completely before icing.Pioneer Woman recommends the cream-cheese frosting. It does go well with it, but you don't need very much icing at all!
They're just as good without icing!

You could also use fruit roll-ups instead of the sour straps. Anything that will be easy to place around the base of the ice cream cone.
200 grams was enough to cover 6 biscuits and ice cream cones, as well as 3 mini ice cream cones and 3 oreos.You can melt your chocolate over a double boiler on the stove, by placing a bowl over a pot of water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water inside the pot.
You can also melt it in 20 second intervals in the microwave, stirring after each 20 seconds.
Put your ice cream cone into the chocolate, and coat completely. Let any excess chocolate drip off.
Place the cone onto the chocolate covered biscuit, and wrap you pre cut sour straps around the base. Using the mini m&m, hide the join where the 2 ends meet.
Remember if there is ice-cream inside the cones, they will need to be placed in the freezer!!
If there is a cream based filling, they will need to be properly refrigerated!Don't limit these to witches hats. You could easily make wizard hats, or even christmas trees for christmas..
If you want to make mini ones, I used oreos (seperated) and mini ice cream cones. Following the same instructions above. To colour your chocolate, make sure you use a powder colour, as any liquid colours will make the chocolate seize.

This is how you can make them.....
2) Lollipop sticks - one for each marshmallow. I found mine here.
3) Sprinkles, or m&ms, or choc chip bits. Any type of candy/lolly you want to decorate them with. Or you can just leave them "blank."
4) A piece of styrofoam to put the lollipops into, while the chocolate hardens.
5) Melted Chocolate - for dipping the marshmallows into.
First, put your lollipop stick into a marshmallow. Marshmallows are sticky on the inside, so you won't need to dip the sticks in the chocolate first. They should stay in the marshmallow quite fine. You then need to put your marshmallows into your piece of styrofoam, so when it comes time to drying, it will be alot easier.
Then dip it into your choice of decoration, and place it back into the piece of stryrofoam to dry.
