"This was a hit at the Cub Scout end of year pic nic! To make things easier we used chocolate rice crispy treats and only drizzle chocolate on tops. Used a buttered ice cream scoop to scoop treats into the cones. This was cute and all the kids wanted a cone!"

"This was a fun recipe, but not necessarily a good birthday party choice- kids may be allergic to the peanut butter. You can substitute almond butter instead."
