Adorable and EASY, these Santa Hat Cookie Cones come together in minutes, are fun to decorate with the kids and contain a hidden surprise that everyone will love!
Ingredients
  • 1 pkg (8 count) sugar cones
  • 1 pkg red candy melts (like by Wilton)
  • Miniature marshmallows
  • 8 frosted Oreo halves
  • Assorted miniature candies (foil-wrapped milk chocolate balls, Sixlets, M&M's, etc).
Instructions
  1. To make things easier, get everything ready to go all in one place. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside. Put your marshmallows in a small bowl, and in another small bowl put your assorted candies. It makes it easier to be organized and work faster.
  2. Melt the red candy wafers in a glass or microwaveable loaf pan. I found it's easier since it's longer and shallow as opposed to a bowl. Melt in 30 second increments, stirring after each set to ensure the chocolate melts properly and doesn't scorch.
  3. Once smooth & melted, dip each cone into the red chocolate, turning it to coat completely. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off the cone. Quickly & carefully invert it (pointed end up) onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Affix miniature marshmallows along the base of the cone and attach one miniature marshmallow on the top point using a little dab of chocolate. Allow the cones to set completely.
  5. Once the chocolate has set, gently remove the cones from the wax paper. Fill each cone cavity with assorted candies until it just barely reaches the rim. Take the frosted side of the Oreo cookie and gently yet firmly attach it, frosted side down, to conform to the open cavity of the cone. The frosting will act as a glue to seal everything in!
  6. Carefully turn the cones right-side up and serve!
