Sugar cone teepee, Thanksgiving activity
Make these adorable teepees with your kids as a fun way to celebrate Thanksgiving and tell the story of the first Thanksgiving. This Sugar cone teepee, Thanksgiving activity will be fun for the whole family.
I feel like Thanksgiving gets forgotten sometimes. I love anytime that I get to get with my loved ones and family and eat yummy food. 😉 These are fun to make with the kids either on Thanksgiving day or on the days leading up to Thanksgiving.
You will need:
Ice cream cones
Milk chocolate morsels or chocolate almond bark
Leaf sprinkles (I used these.)
Cover a plate or a pan with wax paper. Cut a pretzel stick in half, this will be the top of your teepee. You will also need one whole pretzel stick for each ice cream cone. Set those aside.
Carefully cut the point of each ice cream cone, removing about ½ inch allowing enough room for one pretzel stick to pass through the opening and set aside
In the microwave melt your chocolate in 30 second intervals. Be sure not to overhead, the chocolate will not set up right if it burns. Dip the large opening of each ice cream cone into the melted chocolate about 1/4 inch. Use a spoon to remove extra chocolate. Drop or dip chocolate end into the leaf sprinkles and gently pressing them into place. (Dropping the sprinkles instead of rolling the cone creates less mess and results in a neater teepee.) Immediately place the ice cream cone on the waxed paper to dry.
To assemble the top of the teepee,
dip a whole pretzel stick into the melted milk chocolate about halfway. Carefully slide the pretzel stick into the cut opening of the ice cream cone and angle the pretzel to rest against the inside of the cone. Some of the chocolate from the pretzel stick will remain at the opening of the cone, that is ok. Next, take two pretzel stick halves and slightly dip one end of each into the melted chocolate. You only need a drop of chocolate as the pretzel stick pieces will attach to the melted chocolate left at the opening by the whole pretzel stick. Place the pieces at the top of the teepee next to the other pretzel stick. Keep in mind, you will have to hold in place until the chocolate has set enough to move your hands without the pretzel stick falling.
When all teepees are dipped and decorated, place in the refrigerator or freezer until the chocolate is set.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Placing in the refrigerator for an extended amount of time may cause the cone to soften.
