Crispy Cone Treats

Kids get a kick out of ice cream cones filled with a chocolate-topped rice cereal mixture. They'll disappear off the bake sale table! Or make them for a birthday party instead of cake. —Vera Matheson, Portage la Prairie, Manitoba

    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.
