If you are planning to have ice cream at you celebration of 4th of July or Memorial day why not decorate your ice cream cone so you can serve it with style? It is very simple – just rotate the open end in melted chocolate or candy melts and then cover with candy sprinkles of red, white and blue. Look for sprinkles that are already mixed with red and blue and sometimes you can find sprinkles that are stars.
What better way to keep kids feeling jolly than to encourage them to play with their food — which is the whole point of our Snack-tivity Station. To help your guests create these festive Ice-cream-cone Trees, stock the station with paper plates, sugar cones, sugar cookies (your own or store-bought), store-bought icing (one batch of white, one batch tinted with green food coloring), shredded coconut, sprinkles, lollipops, and a selection of bite-size candies. To make a tree, spread a cone with green icing; spoon a dollop of white icing onto a sugar cookie, then gently push the cone into the icing. Top the icing with shredded coconut snow. Decorate the tree with sprinkles and candy ornaments, and crown with a lollipop star (nibble a hole in the cone for the stem). Provide flat-bottomed brown bags so kids can take home their trees (or tree pieces!).
