Have I got the perfect kids party treat for you! These sweet treats are a tiny part of my latest contribution to Yum Food & Fun for Kids magazine, photographed by Anne Weston Photography. You can see more about the magazine feature here, but first I wanted to tell you about these Rice Krispies Treats “Ice Cream Cones.”

These are simple to make but they are delicious {of course} and are a wonderful addition to any ice cream party, birthday party, or carnival themed party {or “just because”}. Here’s what you do:

Rice Krispies Treats Ice Cream Cones

  • 1 pack ice cream cones {I like these sugar cones best but the flat bottom or waffle cones would work too}
  • 1 batch of prepared Rice Krispies Treats {no need to put them in a serving dish since you’ll be rolling them into balls – just work out of the pan you mix them in}
  • Chocolate melting disks or chips, melted over a double boiler
  • Red m&m’s or other red candy
  • butter or margarine

Mix up a batch of rice krispies treats and let cool slightly so you can handle it. Meanwhile have your melted chocolate handy.

Apply a light coating of butter to your hands so you can work with the treat mixture without it sticking to you. Now grab a handful of rice krispies treats and form into a ball the size of your ice cream cone.

Dip the top of the ball into the melted chocolate and let it run down a bit. Top with a red candy piece for the “cherry” on top, and place the rice krispies ball on the cone. Work it in a little so the ball is secure.

PARTY TIP: Use something like dried beans or dry rice as a base layer, and then top with the candies so they are the only thing that shows.

  1. Love, Love, Love this.
    Quick question…your chocolate looks so thick…how did you do this using melts? They are melted and turn out very smooth. Thanks for any help.

    1. Annabelle, I don’t think it’s as thick as it looks. It’s just that the bumpy texture of the rice krispies makes it look thicker. However, I may have double dipped to get even coverage {can’t remember now}.

  2. Fantastic idea for my daughter’s 6th birthday! She can’t eat ice cream so this a great alternative … and I love the display tip (use dried beans as base and cover with candy)! Thanks, Chris.
