Spray the basket of your Air-fryer with cooking spray, and lay the dough-wrapped molds into the basket.

Air fry the horns for 4 minutes. 

Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Make the filling while the horns are cooling.

In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and Crisco until light and fluffy.

Add the powdered sugar a little at a time, mixing between additions.

Add the marshmallow cream, and mix well, scraping down the bowl, and mixing again.

Add the vanilla, and blend on low.

Add the heavy cream, and mix until blended into the ingredients.

Turn mixer on high speed and mix for 2 minutes.

The mixture will be thick and fluffy.

Place the filling in a pastry bag with a large star tip.

Remove the cream horns from the molds, and fill the cream horns from both ends, filling them to the middle from both ends. Place the cream horns on parchment paper after filling. 

To decorate, melt white chocolate in the microwave, and add several drops of neon green food coloring gel to the frosting until you reach the desired color. Stir well.

With a small spreader, spread the green chocolate around the large end of the cream horn, about an inch or so.

Dip the green chocolate into the Halloween sprinkles, and then add different sizes of the candy eyes on top of the sprinkles.

In less than an hour, you’ll have a spooky puff pastry dessert that’s sure to become a new favorite!
