Halloween desserts {dipped ice cream cones}


 You all know how much I LOVE ice cream.  My blog was first named I Heart Nap Time with Chocolate Sundaes for crying out loud! LOL. I love Halloween desserts as well… so I made the ice cream cones festive for the upcoming holiday! ;)

 First off… have any of you been to Smart and Final?! I remember going there back in high school when I was Jr. Class President. I was in charge of Prom (I may have been still setting up when my date arrived-but that’s a whole different post). I bought EVERYTHING there because they’re paper products were so well priced. Well this was my first time I had been back since high school and boy have I been missing out! I found so many fun containers, cake decorating supplies and lots more for super cheap!

Today I got to review their ice cream products… did I mention how excited I was about that?! Didn’t think so! ;) I’ve been wanting to make some chocolate dipped cones for awhile, so I thought I would try those out. Dipping cones is seriously so easy/fun … and it makes ALL the difference. All you do is melt your chocolate in a bowl for one minute. Stir around…then dip your cone in the chocolate. You can use a spoon to help get the chocolate up on the edges.Then sprinkle on your favorite toppings… sprinkles, coconut, crushed oroes, toffee bits…anything you’d like!For people who don’t love cones (cough -my husband- cough) you can put ice cream in these First Street Food containers. They were 25 for a dollar… can’t beat that! They are pretty plain… so I wanted to dress them up a little. All I did was add a folded ribbon with glue, then folded a cupcake wrapper on top of that and added the spider for Halloween. SO cute!!P.S. I think the kids enjoyed the ice cream cones too! ;) They were SUPER yummy! Aren’t they cute?! mmm…
