Still, I was captivated. At a time, I’m certain I could recite every line and every song of that movie. With my long wavy hair, and my deep love of all things books (I would LOVE to have my own sweeping castle library), Belle was one of the princesses I thought about dressing up as for Halloween. Somehow, I found my love for Snow White – for costume – and for Queen Elsa – for personality, but I will always love Belle as one of my original favorites. In fact, we visit her every January in Disney World!
Now what if I told you that you could make THESE at home?
Scarlet developed a deep love for Disney Princesses when she was still a toddler. While she would dress up as all of them, she had a specific yellow dress she called her “Belle Dress.” In fact, I dug it out for you to see! She LOVED this special dress:
And now she’s old enough to help me make some special treats. You can fill them with ice cream, candy, or any sweet treat! Use them for a party, for a special dinner, or to celebrate the release of the new Beauty and the Beast movie in March.
Now, here’s what you do to make your own Chip Teacups, with ingredients, instructions, and photos. You will absolutely delight the Beauty and the Beast fans in your life, because these are terribly CUTE, and you can make them at home yourself.
- Keebler Butter Cookies (any brand will work)
- Plain Ice Cream Cones
- Wilton Candy Melts, Bright White
- Twist Pretzels
- Wilton Candy Drizzle Pouch, Pink, Blue, Brown
- Edible Writing Markers, optional
- Edible Gold Glitter
- 1. Cut about 1/3 of the bottom off each cone.
- 2. Break off rounded edges from the pretzels so they look like little cup handles.
- 3. Place white candy melts in a bowl, and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring each time, until melted.
- 4. Dip the little pretzel handles into melted chocolate until coated and place on parchment paper. 5. Sprinkle on edible gold glitter. Let Dry
- 6. Dip ice cream cones into melted chocolate until covered inside and out, place on parchment paper and let dry. Cut a small V-shape into the top of the cone to symbolize the chip.
- 7. Next, dip each end of the cone into the melted candy melts and lightly dip into the glitter to form a gold rim on each end of the cone.
- 8. Heat the pink and blue drizzle pouches according to package directions, and make little triangle shapes around the edge of the cookie, alternating each color.
- 9. Next, draw on Chip’s eyes and mouth. You can use an edible food marker or use a brown color drizzle pouch to do this as well, whichever you prefer.
- 10. Finally, place a small circle of melted chocolate in the center of the cookie and set the cone on it, then put a little more chocolate on the inside of the cone to make sure it sticks to the cookie. 11. Let dry.
