Mini faux ice cream cones


So it's June!! I figured it needed some ice cream cones to celebrate the summertime season.  (It may not be officially summer yet, but we're close enough!)


OK, it's not real ice cream but marshmallows--fruity marshmallows in lime, strawberry, orange and lemon flavors (I kinda have a thing for all the variety of marshmallows out there these days).


I've actually done these before but with homemade swirled marshmallow here, but this version really takes no time to throw together.

I found the mini cones in my regular supermarket!
All you need is mini ice cream cones and store bought marshmallows.  Just squeeze the bottom of the marshmallow into the cone--it's a pretty good fit but I did add a little melted chocolate to the bottom of the marshmallow to make sure it didn't come out).



Then dip in some melted chocolate and top with your favorite sprinkles or candies.


And let chocolate harden, that's it!


And although I love the taste of homemade marshmallows (which actually are pretty quick to whip up), I also definitely like the store bought ones too.  These literally took me less than 1/2 hour to put together.


The kiddos liked these too, I mean who doesn't like ice cream cone stuff? It just makes you smile.


Have a great rest of the week and enjoy the June summertime weather!
