I Scream! You Scream! We All Scream For...

 Ice Cream Treats!

My son's birthday is today and I thought we would bring treats to his preschool class.  They are studying the letter I so we decided to make little faux ice cream cones.  These are fairly sturdy for transporting and lack the frosting mess factor.   As a daycare provider and former teacher, I love the fact that little fingers should be clean after nibbling this snack.

To make these little ice cream cones you will need:
  • Marshmallow Fudge Cookies-  I have seen vanilla before and if you are having difficulties in finding these little guys-  check in the dollar aisle or dollar store
  • Small candies
  • Ice cream cones-  we went with the "normal" size to make sure our cookies would fit on the top.
  • baggies and ties, optional

Here's how to put them together:
  • Fill your ice cream cones with small candies.  We used candy corn and m&m's, because that is our son's favorites.  Get creative!

  • Take a marshmallow cookie and top each cone.  This should look like a scoop of ice cream.

  • Finally, I bagged each treat and tied them.  This is optional, but for transporting I thought it would be easier and reduce the risk of spilled candy everywhere.

Do you have any fun treat ideas?
