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.

Ice Cream Cones
Red & White Frosting (could use green too)
Green & Yellow Sprinkles
Decorate your cones, for the hats use your marshmallows for the bottom rim and one on the top of the hat.
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.
