Mini Rice Krispie Treats Ice Cream Cones

Rice Crispie Ice Cream Cones

Here’s a cute idea for treats or for a child’s birthday party. The ice cream cones are teeny, tiny – about 1-.75″ tall (Joy Kids Cones from Walmart).

A cookie scoop or small melon baller is used to form the ice cream from the Rice Krispie mixture, then drizzled with melted almond bark or candy melts.  To make the cones more stable, you can put some candy in the cone, then use the candy melts to “glue” the scoop to the cone.  See tutorial at Cute As a Fox.

Simple Stunning Parties at Home

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

“When the opportunity for celebrating knocks, answer the door and offer it some champagne!” says Karen Bussen. Author of the bestselling “Simple Stunning” wedding series, Bussen now directs her expert’s eye to a more intimate kind of festivity: the at-home party.

Her simple stunning credo, though, remains the same: Create menus featuring wonderful ingredients in no-fuss, crowd-pleasing preparations; combine homemade and store-bought items in fresh, elegant presentations; tailor colors, tableware, and lighting for visual impact; and limit effort, expense, and waste.

The book details 12 complete plans for four different kinds of parties—cocktail gatherings, casual suppers, formal dinners, and daytime get-togethers. Each plan includes food and drink menus (with recipes) as well as decor and music suggestions. Following Bussen’s advice, you’ll delight your guests while showcasing your personal style—which is what great parties are all about.
