Bewitching Ice Cream Cones
Both young and old members of my family request these frozen treats every Halloween. It's been a fun tradition around here for many years. —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah

- Coat edge of ice cream cones with decorating gel; press chocolate wafer against gel to make bring of hat. Set aside.
- Drop eight scoops of ice cream onto a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Cut licorice into strips for hair; press into ice cream. Add chocolate chips for eyes and candy corn for noses. Pipe red gel for mouths.
