How to Make Edible Easter Baskets with Ice Cream Cones

So what does an empty ice cream cone have to do with Easter?  Well, absolutely nothing, unless you use said ice cream cone as an edible Easter basket!  Here's how:

  1. Purchase a box of regular ice cream cones at a dollar store or Aldi.
  2. Buy pink baking chips at Michael's craft store for around $3.00.  And if you sign up for their weekly email ad, you just may recieve 40% or even 50% off coupons.
  3. You will also need green candy sprinkles, clear plastic bags and pastel ribbon.  Once again a Michael's coupon will surely come in handy for the above items.
  4. Now, melt the pink baking chips in the microwave and stir until smooth.
  5. Dip the rims of the cones in the melted mixture and roll in the green sprinkles.  Let dry.
  6. Fill your edible Easter baskets with tasty treats like:  Jelly Bellies, pastel M&Ms, malted milk balls or foil wrapped chocolates.
  7. Place your edible Easter baskets in the plastic bags and tie the tops with decorative ribbon.

Here's another fun Edible Easter project your kids will surely enjoy:


  1. What a neat post! Looking forward for more post from you. Thank you for sharing!

  2. There are many fine and tasty herbs, spices and condiments that can add zest to some of the more bland heart health dishes. Herbs include oregano, basil, cilantro, thyme, parsley, sage, rosemary. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper and paprika are all acceptable spices. Along with the reduced fat or nonfat salad dressing and salsa there are old standbys like mustard, catsup, horseradish, reduced fat or nonfat mayonnaise, reduced fat or nonfat sour cream, reduced fat or nonfat yogurt and reduced sodium soy sauce. That’s to say nothing of Parmesan cheese, fruit preserves and simple red pepper flakes, none of which will harm you heart.
