Cornucopia Thanksgiving  Treats

These little Thanksgiving treats are just right for kids at the holiday table or for a school feast day treat. The waffle cones can be filled with any number of small goodies. 


What you'll need:

  • Waffle ice cream cones

  • Tea Kettle

  • Wax paper

  • Small spoon

  • Assorted small treats (see below for ideas)


How to make it:  (Warning: Adult supervision is recommended when using the stove)

  1. Place a kettle half-filled with water on the stove.  Set the burner on medium-high and wait for it to steam.

  2. Once your water is steaming, very carefully place the pointed end into the spout.  Let the cone sit in the spout for about 9 seconds.  Carefully remove the cone and use your hand and a small metal spoon to gently start shaping the cone end.    Watch out because the cone will be very hot.  You may have to reinsert the cone a few times depending on how dry the cone is.

  3. Once you have the shape you want, hold onto the cone for a few seconds as it cools down to set the shape.  Set your shaped cone on wax paper to cool off completely before filling.
