Ingredients

  • Mini ice cream cones
  • Pink candy melts

  • White nonpareil sprinkles

  • Cookie scoop
  • Plastic Ziploc bag or pastry bag

  • Use a cookie scoop to create the "ice cream" scoops, packing firmly and leaving enough excess on the sides for a natural ice cream scoop look. sugar to the bag(s), then seal and shake until well coated. Spread the mixture out on wax paper to cool.

  • Squeeze and gently remove the treats from the cookie scoop, then add them to the candy-filled ice cream cones.

  • Melt candy melts. Pour into a plastic bag, then cut off a corner for a makeshift piping bag. Drizzle over treat scoops.

  • Before the candy melts set, add nonpareil sprinkles and top each with a Sixlet.
