Rice Krispie Treat Cones

My daughter recently celebrated her 10th birthday with a slumber party for several of her friends.  When planning the treats for the party, I knew I wanted something fun and easy to serve.  As I was browsing Pinterest (seriously, how did I ever plan parties before Pinterest?) I came across these super cute cones at Maddycakes Muse.  How perfect!  They look so much like real ice cream cones but the fact that they're actually chocolate-covered Rice Krispie treats make them so easy to make in advance and serve easily.

Check them out...


Here's how I made them...

(Note: To make 18 cones, I had to make up two batches of the Rice Krispie treat mixture)

1.  Make up a regular batch of Rice Krispie Treats.
          * 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
          *  1 bag of marshmallows
          *  5 1/2 cups of Rice Krispie cereal

     Melt the butter over low heat, add the marshmallows and stir until melted.  Remove from heat and add the Rice Krispie cereal, stirring until well coated.

2.  Allow the Rice Krispie mixture to cool slightly so it's not quite so sticky, about 5 minutes.  Then fill the inside of each cone with the mixture ~ this gives you more treat to eat AND it helps to stabilize your cones so they're not too top-heavy.  Next add another generous scoop of the Rice Krispie mixture to form the top "ice cream" part of the cone.



See how the first scoop filled it to the top of the cone, 
then the second scoop was mounded on top?

3.  Instead of using an ice cream scoop, I found it easier to just scoop out the mixture with a regular spoon and mound it on top.  Then I used a piece of waxed paper sprayed with cooking spray to mold the mixture into a more evenly rounded shape.


4.  Finally, I melted some chocolates for dipping.  I did three "flavors" ~ white chocolate for vanilla, white chocolate tinted pink for strawberry, and regular chocolate.  I simply dipped the top of the cone in the melted chocolate, then used a rubber spatula to spread it on evenly.


5.  I set the dipped cones in a cupcake tin for some stability and added some sprinkles while the chocolate was still warm.


That's it!  They were quite simple to make and looked really cute set out on a tray for the party.  (Although I forgot to get a picture of them nicely displayed!).  

The chocolate coating was a bit too hard to get a regular birthday candle into, but we improvised with a sparkler and it was a huge hit!



One happy and satisfied birthday girl...

    1. I think it's perfect for a school treat. I'm bummed that our school recently instituted a store-bought treats only policy because of food allergies so I could only make them for our party at home. I think they'd be awesome for bake sales too!
