- Kid Size Ice Cream Cones
- Candy Melts or Almond Bark
- Sixlets - I used pastel sixlets that I found around Easter time. Any small round candy would do.
- 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 and I think it is well worth the investment.
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 or exact so play with the first few until you like what you see.
4. Squeeze the handle of the cookie scoop and gently remove the Rice Krispies scoop. One batch of Rice Krispies Treats made approximately 34 scoops. 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 and sixlets to the Rice Krispies scoop. I found it easiest to drizzle a few scoops then add sprinkles and sixlet. 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. There are a few options for this. I simply put some extra candy into the cones to help weigh them down and keep them stable. You could also dip the edge of the cone in candy melts to help "glue" the scoop onto the cone. You could also fill the cones with frosting.
This is a treat that is geared more towards children, but everyone that tried one really loved them. With one batch making over 30 scoops, there were a lot of folks that got to try these.
