Ice Scream Skulls




Introduction: Ice Scream Skulls



This was also my very best attempt in making an Apple Cider Vanilla Ice Cream, as I wanted to incorporate some fall flavors. To make it spooky, I added some black food coloring. Also the recipe is for a "No-Churn" ice cream, made without using an ice-cream machine. The whipped cream base ice cream works better with the molds.



Ice Cream

  1. 苹果酒 - 3杯减少到1杯,仅使用1/2杯
  2. 红糖 - 3/4杯
  3. Heavy Whipping cream - 2 cups
  4. 甜浓缩牛奶 - 3/4杯
  5. Vanilla Essence - 1 Tbsp
  6. Black Food coloring - 10-14 drops


  1. Unsalted Butter - 2 Tbsp
  2. Unsweetened Chocolate - 4 Oz
  3. 盐 - 1/2茶匙
  4. Sugar - 1 Tsp
  5. Eggs - 2
  6. 通用面粉 - 1杯
  7. Vanilla Essence - 1 Tsp



  1. Pitted Cherries - 1/2 cup
  2. Raspberries - 1/2 cup
  3. Sugar - 2 Tbsp


  1. Basic kitchen tools - Pots, Spoons, Ladle, Whisk, Cookie Sheet, Loaf Pan, Measuring cups and Spoons.
  2. Skull Mold - I got mine from Amazon (Link -Skull Mold)
  3. Mixer - A hand mixer or stand mixer would be helpful. But the heavy cream can be whipped using a whisk as well.
  4. Waffle maker
  5. 锥形 - 我制作了纸锥并用来模塑锥形
  6. Sieve - If you plan to make a smooth berry sauce
  7. Dropper - To inject berry sauce onto the skull (optional)


Ice Cream Recipe

This ice cream recipe will suffice to make 8-10 ice cream skulls scoops and provide for the the filling of the cone.

  1. 在一个锅里,我加了3杯苹果酒和所有的红糖。让它在低介质火焰上煨,用搅拌器偶尔搅拌偶尔,确保它被溶解。一旦解决方案沸腾到少于1杯,我就在碗里放在一边,让它冷却。
    • Note: It takes about 30-35 minutes to reduce to less than 1 cup. This step is important as the excess water gets evaporated and formation of any ice crystals in the ice cream can be avoided. Also, the flavor of apple cider gets more concentrated.
  2. 我用厨房辅助站式搅拌机混合。在混合碗中,我加入了所有的重霜,加甜的浓缩牛奶,香草精华和半杯苹果酒。
  3. 轻轻地折叠混合物并混合在温和速度上几秒钟。然后我添加了10-14滴黑食着色以2-3滴,以达到所需的灰色黑色。
  4. Beat the mixture on speed 4 for 1-2 minutes until stiff peaks were formed.

Step 2: Formation of Skull Cones

I saved half of the ice cream mixture in a loaf pan and put it in the freezer. This will be used to fill the cones. Used the other half of the ice-cream mixture to make the skull shaped ice cream scoops.

  1. 在头骨模具的两侧填充冰淇淋混合物。擦掉过量。
  2. Overlay the top half of the mold onto the bottom half to allow for the skull formation.
  3. 将模具放在冰箱中,让它冻结过夜。
    • 注意:点击模具,确保冰淇淋到达所有角落和缝隙。模具中有微小的孔(头骨背面)。这允许液体在冻结期间膨胀时逸出。但鞭打奶油是如此蓬松,当我填补它们时,我没有泄漏问题。
  4. 第二天,在从模具中取出冰淇淋骷髅之前,我戴着佩戴的手指避免手指印刷品。
  5. 我小心地脱下了他们的头骨侧然后前面。
  6. 把头骨pre-chilled容器。
  7. Put them back in freezer to store them.

Step 3: Chocolate Waffle Cone

  1. In a small bowl, I added butter and unsweetened chocolate and placed them in the microwave for 20 seconds. Gave it a stir and placed it in the microwave for another 15 seconds to make sure its completely melted.
  2. 在一个碗里,添加了2个鸡蛋,并给它一个好的搅拌器一分钟。向鸡蛋中加入糖,并将其混合再次2-3分钟。
  3. 为此,我添加了黄油巧克力融化,盐和香草精华。轻轻加入面粉并混合得很好
  4. Meanwhile, placed the waffle maker on the stove on low-medium flame.
  5. Poured less than 1/4 cup of the waffle cone mixture in the middle and gave it a press. Let the waffle cook for 30 seconds. Depends on the waffle cone maker. I did not use any spray as mine had a non-sticky surface.
  6. 将华夫饼干转移到一个地方,并尽快将其包裹在纸锥周围。拿了夫妇转向练习它。
    • 注意:我用了我自己的纸锥。如果您有任何或获得锥形制造商 - 可在亚马逊/烘焙用品商店可用,您可以使用Cone-Esque对象。

Step 4: Bloody Berry Sauce

To show some impact of the broken glass, I wanted to show some blood. What better way to pair the Apple Cider Vanilla Ice Cream with a Berry Sauce.

  1. In a pot, I added half cup of pitted Cherries and half cup of Raspberries (I used berries from my frozen smoothies fruit bag)
  2. 加入1-2汤匙糖,让混合物在低温下煨。
  3. 一旦浆果柔软,我按下它们以释放更多的纸浆和果胶以增强糖浆的味道。
  4. Once the sauce thickened, I passed it through the sieve to get a smoother saucy consistency.

Step 5: Presentation

The extra ice cream for the cone and the skull cone scoops were taken out from the freezer prior to serving.

  1. Filled the cones with the ice cream, I used a spoon
  2. Placed the skull cone scoops on top of the cone
  3. Using a dropper, I added some bloody berry sauce to mimic the blood oozing out of the skull.

That's it!! Creepy Skull cone are ready !!

Thanks for checking out this instructable. I hope you can try it as well. Any flavor profile would work with these molds as long as its whipped cream based. I am entering this project for the Halloween Contest - Food category. If you like it, please give it a vote :)

    These are really imaginative and great for halloween. I would eat them if I could. I like how you colored them, but I would have made them a little bit lighter and less green. Good job!

    Thank You !! It means a lot. And yes, will definitely play around with color next time. Also, as the ice cream melted away, it was a bit lighter and would make the darker parts of the skull look more freakish. Its Halloween, why not.
