Ice Cream Cone Treats

I came up with this recipe as a way for my grandkids to enjoy Rice Krispies Treats without getting sticky hands. You can also pack the cereal mixture into paper cups and insert a wooden pop stick to create cute pops. —Mabel Nolan, Vancouver, Washington

    These were a more huge hit with the adults than the kids - fun and easy to make - love this recipe and the way to fix them

    These cones were fun and tasty! They aren't as indulgent as ice cream, so I didn't feel guilty eating them! As another reviewer pointed out, even with buttered fingers they are hard to assemble. I also used an ice cream scooper to put the treats into the cones.

    My 3 year old daughter loves to make these treats! So easy and so fun! We use colored marshmallows to make different color "ice cream"

    These were very cute and everyone was impressed at our party; however, they were extremely sticky to put together. I found if I let the rice krispie treats harden, just a bit, I could use my ice cream scoop to make them.
