Christmas Cone Treats

Christmas Cone Treats

This past weekend it was so cold out that I did not want to really go anywhere with the kids.  So I was trying to come up with some fun ideas that would keep them entertained for a while and that would be really fun.

I had seen these Christmas cone treats done on Pintrest before (well the trees anyway) and thought it would be something really fun the kids could make and use their imaginations on.

So when Saturday rolled around I set up the kitchen table for some fun Christmas cone treat decorating.  They made the hats first, then they made the trees.  Both my girls (ages 2 and 6) had fun with this.  It is easy enough for my little one but fun enough that my oldest really enjoyed it.

Once we were done I let them each eat a cone, and the rest we put in the fridge.  After they sat in the fridge for a bit the frosting hardened and was much less messy.  We made these for fun, but I think they would totally be a great cupcake or cake topper for the holidays.  This would also be a great project to do with a group of kids, as long as you don’t mind a little mess.

Supplies

Ice Cream Cones
Red & White Frosting (could use green too)

For the Tree use your green sprinkles and M&M’s.  We also covered a marshmallow in frosting and then added yellow sprinkles for the star.

If you put them in the fridge for a little the frosting will harden a bit to make it easier to use a cupcake topper.

    These are too cute! I wish my daughter was still young to do things like this with me. Thank you for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you next week.

    These cones turned out so cute. But, pssst, I think there was a little sampling going on before they were all done. Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday on Organized 31.

    What a fun idea to do with the kiddos! I think I like this actually more than having them decorate sugar cookies… might have to do this this weekend when I have the Christmas party with all of my nieces and nephews. Thank you for sharing with all of us over at the Show Stopper Saturday link party! Love it!

    Hi there excellent blog! Does running a blog like this require
    a great deal of work? I’ve absolutely no knowledge
    of programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog
    in the near future. Anyhow, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject however I simply needed to ask.
    Thank you!
