Spread out a sheet of wax paper on the counter with the cookie wafers spaced evenly apart.
Place chocolate chips in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Cover and heat for 10 seconds. Stir chocolate to aid melting. Repeat as needed until chocolate is melted and smooth.
Cut sugar cones down to about 2 1/2 to 3" tall leaving the pointy side.
Dip the cones completely in the melted chocolate.
Then roll the widest ends only into the sprinkles.
Place the cone onto the cookie wafer to form the rim of the hat.
Place into refrigerator to set.
Now you need to make the syrup for the balls. Remember, go ahead and have all of your decoration ingredients set up and ready to use because you have to be quick! The popcorn balls will be very sticky at first, but once the syrup on the balls starts cooling, it gets less sticky!
