A Chocolate-Covered Tee-Pee
It would quite unfair if I didn’t pay homage
to my special ethnic heritage for this theme’s:
I know the blonde hair and super pale skin
make you instantly think:
“She must have American Indian blood in her!”
It’s as if you know me…
This fact always throws people off
but the truth is, I really do
have a good portion of Red Cherokee blood
running through my veins.
So in honor of my heritage and Thanksgiving,
I wanted to do a fun food project
that represents another side of the Thanksgiving table:
The building of a chocolate-covered tee-pee
Watch how it magically turns from a simple foundation
into a fully decorated tee-pee:
(fireplace not included)
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 1 GF ice cream cone (cut out triangle for tee-pee opening and a small opening on the top)
- 1 Dr. Lucy’s cookie for the base
- GF pretzels
- melted vegan chocolate chips
- vegan icing, various colors
- 1 small slice of strawberry for flame in the fire
- handful of cacao nibs for sprinkling
- First, coat cone with melted chocolate. Place 2 pretzel sticks in the top hole and allow to set.
- Coat cookie with chocolate. Use chocolate as glue to set cone on top of cookie.
- Place pretzel bits in formation of fire logs and set strawberry on top (using choco as glue) .
- Using icing, make patterns on the tee-pee.
- Sprinkle with cacao nibs for dirt.
- Eat or just adore.
It’s almost as if I can feel the warmth
of the tee-pee fire hitting my skin…
