Ice Cream Cone Puppies (and Monkeys!)

Welcome to Inspiration Thursday!!

This week I was inspired to make these CUTE ice cream cones that look like little puppies!



I was inspired by Beth at Hungry Happenings who has made some super cute ice cream cone creations. 

Sophia and I made her Monkey ice cream cones this weekend and it was a blast. For her easy how to click on her link above. 
They were so fun to make and the neighbor kids loved them too. 

Just a monkey, hanging in the trees. 

And did I mention super easy and delicious!

Sophia and I are now obsessed with decorating our ice cream cones so be prepared for some more cute creations as the summer goes on. 

To make Ice Cream Cone Puppies:

1. Nutter Butters
2. M&M candies (or something similar)
3. Edible Food Writer in Black
4. Nilla Wafers
5. Candy Eyes (Wilton) 
6. Chocolate Ice Cream & Cones 

First draw your little nose shape on your Nilla Wafer and adhere the candy for the nose. We used some left over frosting but corn syrup would work as well. Also, if you don't have candy eyes, you can use small marshmallows cut in half and put a little black eye on with your edible writer or chocolate frosting. 

Now get your Nutter Butters ready to go!

Scoop out ice cream into cone and decorate with nose piece, eyes and ears as shown. 

Simple, cute and fun to do. Perfect for summer.

Oh gosh, more fun ways to use Nutter Butter cookies!!! These cones are adorable and I can see why you and Sophia had so much fun. I could've done this with our homemade ice cream. There's always a next time! Thanks Trish!
