This is hands down the easiest “dessert” I’ve made for a party, and I mean ever in the history of parties! All I did was put cotton candy into ice cream cones and tie them up in cellophane bags. Then I sat myself back and indulged in some cotton candy…. and maybe some wine too. Turns out ‘pink’ pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc. 😉
If you’re looking for a fun treat and need it FAST, look no further! Not only were these easy to make, they were clever, CHEAP, and the kids loved them!
3 oz. Cotton candy = $2
12 pack cones = $1
Cellophane bags = $1
Twine/Ribbon & Scissors = you should have this stuff, I mean, c’mon… this is a DIY blog 🙂
Such a cute and sweet addition to the treat table at my daughter’s 5th birthday party, the ‘Magical Sweet Shoppe.’
The ingredients and supplies, all 5 of them.
Some instances when cotton candy cones come in handy:
- Sweet shoppe themed party
- Carnival themed party
- Ice cream themed party
- Summertime party
- For a bake sale
- For a garage sale
- To sell at the lemonade stand (yes, we have one… do you??)
- Any day of the week because cotton candy is delicious!
“Cotton Candy Candy Candy because life is Sweet!”
Cotton Candy Candy Candy Cones
- 12 pack Cake Cups or Ice Cream Cones
- 2-3 oz. Cotton Candy, two colors preferred
- 12 pack Cellophane Wrappers
- Twine or Ribbon
Stuff each cone with a bit of cotton candy and then form two “scoops” out of the different colors. Firmly stack the scoops onto each other. Wrap each cone in a cellophane bag and tie the end tightly so no air escapes. It took me 15 minutes to make one dozen cones.
That’s it, enjoy! 😎
