Kelloggs Rice Krispies Ice Cream Cones

I am really excited to kick off this week of posting about all the different elements in our Rice Krispies Bake Sale and Lemonade Stand. First things first, the voting is now open on Facebook. Please go here and like(the thumbs up button) each of our lemonade stand pictures. There are four total and each one is labeled Team Phoenix. Thank you so much!!

I am going to tell you how to make these cute and DELICIOUS Rice Krispies Treats Ice Cream Cones.
Supplies:
  • Kid Size Ice Cream Cones
  • Candy Melts or Almond Bark
  • Sprinkles
  • 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)
A word about the Ice Cream Cones. I went to several grocery stores before I found these at Walmart. They are teeny tiny, and the cutest thing you have pretty much ever seen. Each one is about 1.75" tall. Tiny!
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.

Here's one more look at the whole table in case you missed it.


The party continues over at Around My Family Table. Wendy is sharing her fabulous Carnival Lemonade recipe. It was delicious! In fact while we were having our photo shoot we had some children come up that were interested in buying some.

Here's the schedule for the rest of the week:
Thursday, July 14: Lemonade Stand Printables
Friday, July 15: Chocolate Scotcharoos and Rice Krispies Treats
Monday, July 18: Rice Krispies Pinwheels
Tuesday, July 19: Constructing a Lemonade Stand
Wednesday, July 20: Gluten Free Rice Krispies Lemon Bars

I want to give special thanks to Jacquilyn Avery Photography. Not only is she my teammate, she did an amazing job with our photo shoot. We are very lucky to have her! Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

  20. I'll be honest. Marshmellows are one of the grossest foods on this planet, so I am not a fan of rice krispie treats (or anything with a marshmellow base.) I know I'm weird about that, but I have a thing about soft white food.

    However, these little cones are just adorable. I could totally see those for parties!

  35. Love these!!
    Suggestions on how to transport them?

    1. I transported mine in a springform pan, many of them fell over. When I arrived, I set them up on a cake stand, and it was fine. No damage to the cones, etc. Because the candy melts harden, it's not a big deal if these fall over.
      However, they really are top heavy. I didn't put anything in the cone to weight the bottom. I think more candy melt would make it too sweet, and trying to get rice krispie treat into the cone would probably break the cone.
