Happy Thursday! How’s the weather where you are? I’m not sure I really WANT snow, but some kind of precipitation would be nice around there, that’s for sure! I’m a little worried about what this summer may bring in the way of droughts!
So anyway a while back we had a goody day at our office, I truthfully can’t remember why now, but one of the gals brought in these adorable Rice Krispie Ice Cream Cones.
Aren’t they darling. I had never seen such a thing before, so if you know me any at all, you know I had to have the recipe. Partially just so I could share with you guys, but partially because, they’re just so stinking cute… and yes, they were yummy 2. I may or may not have had 2. (ps don’t look at my messy desk at work, please!) Plus sometimes I put recipes here on the ole blog so I don’t forget them or lose them :). And it’s handy if I’m at the store and need a recipe to just look it up :). See I think ahead sometimes. ha!
- Kid Size Ice Cream Cones
- Candy Melts or Almond Bark
- 1 batch of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats(use the recipe on the box)
1. Spray a Cookie Scoop with non-stick spray or butter well. A cookie scoop looks just like an ice cream scoop, only smaller. They aren’t very expensive. But definitely use a size that looks comparable to the ice cream cone.
2. Make your Rice Krispies treats according to the instructions on the box. After you have mixed in the Rice Krispies allow them to cool until you can handle them. Take small bunch of Rice Krispies Treats and stuff them into the cookie scoop. Pack it in nice and tight.
3. Leave an uneven edge of Rice Krispies around the edge of the scoop. You can add more or take away some Rice Krispies as necessary. A scoop of ice cream doesn’t usually look perfect.
4. Squeeze the handle of the cookie scoop and gently remove the Rice Krispies scoop. TIP: You may need to spray your cookie scoop several times during the process. If the cookie scoop gets too sticky, wash it off and remove any melted marshmallow and spray again with non stick spray.
5. Melt almond bark or candy melts and place in a sandwich size ziploc bag. Snip the corner off and drizzle the candy over the ice cream scoops. I held the bag directly over the top and let it drip down the sides on its own.
6. Before the candy sets, add sprinkles to the Rice Krispies scoop. You don’t want to get too far ahead and risk the candy setting before you add your sprinkles.
7. Put the scoops on the cones. Simply dip the edge of the cone in candy melts to help “glue” the scoop onto the cone.
And now the key is…. not to eat them all yourself! Enjoy!
