Although ice cream has been our choice lately for a nice cool treat we sometimes get bored of it quickly. I know, sounds crazy but it’s true! However, there are always new and fun ways to spruce up treats for the kids especially over the summer holidays.
I know I try to minimize the sugar, but sometimes its fun to make a different little treat especially when the kids have been getting along, helping out around the house and having a good time. I won’t lie – that isn’t happening often in our house anymore so when it does, it’s time for a treat!
Cake pops in ice cream cones! What fun? Doesn’t they look like actual ice cream cones? So much fun.
I’ll admit – I want to eat them all myself but that isn’t going to happen so for now I’ll just admire them. They look pretty fantastic don’t they?

8. Melt your pink melting candy in a microwave safe dish in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted (if it is too thick, mix in a teaspoon of crisco)
9. Dip your ice cream cones into the melted chocolate and top with sprinkles and a red or pink M&M
10. Set your cones back in the freezer for 5 minutes for the pink chocolate to harden, now enjoy
Fun right? My kids at first thought it was actual ice cream and had a blast finding out it was cake!
This may now be their favourite treat, and I plan to make some for my daughters upcoming 9th Birthday August 12th too – she is beyond stoked!
