    Another cute idea is to “hide” the foil wrapped Santa in the cone and seal the bottom with a little frosting and a fudge striped cookie!

    Thank you for sharing this! We made them last night for my younger daughter’s book club meeting as our craft/snack, and they were a big hit! Instead of m&ms we used a variety of sprinkles, which worked well too. The girls had so much fun making them and then gobbled them right up. Tons of laughter and fun. Many thanks.

  19. Kayte says:

    Making these for a holiday party this year. About how many trees can you get out of one can of frosting? 3? 4? Thanks!


    I love the trees. Thank you
