Do you need any special ingredients to make Cream Horns?

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

We’ve used quark as part of the filling for these Cream Horns. You could also use aerosol cream, but you would need to check the nutritional values accordingly. Aerosol cream doesn’t have the same stability as whipped quark, so if you use this then your Cream Horns would have to be eaten straight away.

You’ll need some Cream Horn Moulds to make them, and you can pick some up over on Amazon!

We use Sukrin Gold which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Gold over on Amazon. Sukrin Gold doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar.

That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

How many calories are in these Cream Horns?

There are 129 calories per portion in these Cream Horns, which means they fall into our Everyday Light category. 

These Cream Horns are perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet, and fit well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers. 

As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day. Obviously, if your goal is to lose weight then you might want to adjust these slightly! You can read more about these recommendations on the NHS website.

Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Spray the cream horn moulds with low calorie cooking spray.

Step 2

Cut the Weight Watchers Wraps in half and wrap each half around a cream horn mould, pressing firmly. Brush with beaten egg and press firmly again to help the edges to stick.

Step 3

Cook in the oven for 10 minutes until golden.

Step 4

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whip the quark, vanilla extract and White Chocolate Options sachet until light and fluffy. Cover and keep in the fridge. Remove the wrap cones from the oven and leave to cool completely.
