Ice Cream Cone Cornucopias

I was given the cutest little ice cream cornucopia as a gift and, on the promise that they were ridiculously easy to make, I decided to try to make them for the kids and teachers for my son’s school. The promise was true, they were easy to make and fun for all who received.

Step 1: Fill a coffee mug half-full with very warm water. Dip the pointed end of a store-bought sugar cone into the water and let soak for 60 seconds.

Step 2: Place the half wet cone on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 20-30 seconds until the tip is soft.

Step 3: Quickly remove the cone and gently shape the wet tip into a horn shape using the bowl of a spoon. Hold for a few seconds.

Step 4: Gently lay the now bent cone on a non-stick surface to dry. Let dry until cool and hardened.

Step 5: Fill the cone with any fun ingredients you like, such as cereals, dry fruit, candy or nuts.
