I watched on one of the FoodNetwork Castle competition, where they whipped melted chocolate and it looked like ice cream that was dipped for an ice cream cone. Does anybody know how to do this?

I really want to try it, but can't figure it out.

thanks,

Hi, is it ganache? But to make ganache you need heavy cream and chocolate and also ganache can be whipped. icon_smile.gif

No, she used melted chocolate and whipped it with her beater, and added water very slowly. It ended up looking like the top of an icecream cone.

Was this the candy castle challenge? I saw a lady do that on the candy castle challenge at Mall of Americas and I recall them saying it was chocolate she used for the ice cream - - and it looked TOTALLY like ice cream! Unfortunately, I believe the lady who made that particular castle has passed away so I don't know who you'd contact to find out how she did it. I thought it was something more along the lines of modeling chocolate, but I could be wrong.

It is actually chocolate that you add enough water to to make it sieze while you whip it up. Then just use an ice cream scoop and you are good to go!

You could try using the Wilton candy melts. Melt in microwave and add a little water, stirring and adding more until it seizes. I saw that episode the other day, I'm pretty sure that's what she did.

Thanks for all the information. I tried it again, and it worked. The first time I think I over beat it, because the chocolate oil had come out, but the second time, I just beat it until it started to sieze and only added 1/2 tsp of water, and it cam out fine.

I appreciate the help! I am so sad to hear that she passed, but it's great she won the challenge before she did.
