Ice Cream Cone Cornucopia Snacks~Thanksgiving Snacks

Here is another quick, yet adorable snack to add to the kids table at your Thanksgiving feast!  How about  making them this week when the kids get out of school to celebrate the Holiday weekend?  I know my kids loved them!

You will need:

Sugar ice cream cones

Straw

Cup of warm water

Microwave

Filler for your cornucopias (we used trail mix)

Plastic wrap to cover

Ribbon, twine, or something to wrap around the plastic to keep it closed

Begin by getting a small cup of warm water.  Take your straw, dip it in the water, and hold the end to trap some warm water inside the straw.  Dump that into the inside of your sugar cone.  While that softens it up from the inside, dip the outside bottom 1- 1 1/2 inches into the warm water.  Hold there for 20 seconds.  Place in the microwave for 20 seconds.  When it is done, promptly remove it and gently curl it around your straw.  Hold there for several seconds before sliding the straw gently out of the curve.

Let the cones set for a few minutes to give it time to harden up a little.  Fill it up with something yummy.  We used trail mix from the bulk section at Winco.

Rip off a small amount of  plastic wrap and gently wrap it around the opening and tie it off with some ribbon, twine, or something cute to keep it shut.
