My inspiration for holiday themed baking is my mom. As a child, my mom made everything from homemade Easter candy for our baskets to ornate Christmas cookies, without a cutout in sight.

With just three ingredients, you will be ready to make these at the drop of a ... you got it! ( Minimal assembly required) —ashleychasesdinner
Melt dark chocolate chips, about 40 seconds in the microwave. Set aside for 3 minutes.
Measure 1/2 Cup of All Bran Cereal and add in melted chocolate. Stir ingredients together. Let cool in refridgerator for 5 minutes.
Spead out chocolate wafers on a platter or tray. Spoon a small amount of cereal mixture onto wafer and mold into pointy hat with your fingers. Sprinkle with orange crystal sugar. Refridgerate for at least 10 minutes to set hats.
May also store in a air tight container for up to 2 days in the refridgerator.
One constant in my life is food. I love to cook, eat and learn new things about food. I grew up in a family who had the philosophy that the kitchen was the heart of the home. My southern mom and grandma were amazing cooks who taught me food was more than sustenance, it was soulful. I am always amazed, inspired and genuinely happy to have found such a place as food52 with so many like minded individuals. With inspiration like this to draw from, there is endless oportunity to learn new things!
