Stitch cupcake cones

You can’t have a family movie night without your “ohana” — or without watching Lilo and Stitch, for that matter. And if you’re going to be watching Lilo and Stitch anyway, you might as well make some movie-themed desserts for the occasion. You know our favorite alien would approve.

These Stitch and Angel cupcake cones are as delectable as they are cute, and they’re surprisingly simple to make given how much detail is included. Decorating the aliens is probably the hardest part, but it’s also the most fun. Just try not to make as much as a mess as Lilo and Stitch would while baking these.

"Ingredients 2 1/2 Cups crumbled cake (or a small 6″ cake) Waffle cones Vegetable or coconut oil (optional) Oil-based food coloring (blue, purple, black, pink) Small paintbrush Piping bags Frosting of choice (amount varies on the cake) White candy melts Sprinkles Mini candies Mashmallows Scissors Directions"

"In a stand mixer (or by hand), crumb cake and begin adding frosting a little at a time. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure an even mix. You are aiming for a cookie dough-like consistency, where the mixture pulls away from the bowl and forms a ball."

"Roll mixture into cake balls, approximately 1 1/2″ wide, and place on a lined baking tray. Place in freezer for 15-20 minutes, or in the fridge for a couple of hours. Ensure the pops are not frozen when you dip, but are firm and cooled."

"Cut your waffle cones with a serrated knife to 2 3/4″ in length. Melt white chocolate into a double boiler or in 30-second intervals in the microwave. Stir to ensure the heat is distributed evenly, to prevent lumps and the chocolate from burning. If the chocolate you use is too thick, you can thin it down by using a bit of coconut or vegetable oil."

"Then dip the cone edges into melted chocolate and sprinkles. Fill the cones with small candies as an extra little surprise."

"To make Stitch: Melt candy melts the same way you melted the previous chocolate. Color the chocolate a light blue, then dip the bottom 1/3 of your chilled cake balls in the melted chocolate. Attach them to the cones, then stick 2 mini candies in place of the little Tsum Tsum hands. Place on a small ice cream cone holder to set. (Alternatively, you can create your own holder with egg cartons or cardboard boxes with small holes cut into them.)"

"Dye the rest of the chocolate a darker blue. Dip the rest of the cake pop in, making sure it overlaps the first light blue layer, though not completely covering it. With a small paintbrush, paint the mini candy hands the same color."

"Cut the ears out of the edges of marshmallows and stick them onto the cake pop with melted chocolate. When they have set, paint the back of the ears with the same blue chocolate. Dye chocolate purple, then paint the inner section of the ears."

"Melt chocolate, dye some dark and some light blue, add to piping bags, cut a hole in corner, and pipe dark blue for the nose and light blue for the eyes onto wax paper. Let dry. Use some of melted chocolate to add to face. Dye melts black and pipe on as eyes."

"For the Angel cake pops: do the same as above, but replace the blue chocolate with pink!"
