These mini cones with whipped cream are a traditional Danish dessert, and if you cheat a little and use ready-made cones, it doesn’t take more than 10 minutes to prepare. I have mixed the whipped cream with meringues and strawberries, so I guess it makes it a kind of Eton Mess?
Here’s the recipe:
Dessert cones with Eton Mess
¼ l (1 cup) of whipping cream
10 strawberries (save a couple for decoration)
10 mini dessert cones.
Whip the cream in a bowl and place it in the fridge.
Mash the strawberries with a fork, but spare 1 or 2 for decoration.
Crush the meringues. It’s done easily with a big knife.
Mix strawberries, meringues and whipped cream.
Put the filling in the cones with a teaspoon and decorate with strawberries. Voila, it’s ready! After a while, the cream will get runny and the cone will start softening, so the dessert should be served (and eaten) immediately.
You can substitute the strawberries with other berries. Instead of whipped cream, you can also use soft serve for an even more cooling dessert in the hot summer months.
I used the mini cones from Karen Volf, but if you’re looking to make your own, there are several recipes available online. The same applies to the meringues, just ask Google:)
