Ice Cream Cone Krispie Treats

These adorable Ice Cream Cone Krispie Treats are perfect for parties and BBQs! Kids will love them!

I’m gonna tell you a story.

One day there was a kid who had an end of the year BBQ for his baseball team.

That very same day his mother decided she would impress the other baseball moms by making rice krispie treats that look like ice cream cones.


Not only that, but she thought she could dip the cones in chocolate, rim them with sprinkles and fill them with M&Ms.  You know, normal Saturday morning stuff.

Well, after dipping, rimming and krispie treat filling they were done.

And honestly they were about the cutest things ever.


When it was time to go to the BBQ where the oohing and ahhing would commence the mother was ready and waiting.

During this waiting period she may or may not had to ask her child to get his shoes on 70 hundred times without him listening.


The mother carefully packaged her special treats made “for the children” and waited patiently.


ALL OF THE SUDDEN her sweet child came running down the hallway (without shoes on) and crashed right into the poor mother and her tray of Ice Cream Cone Rice Krispie Treats.

And this happened…


The mother’s head then exploded.

The end.


Luckily for you, the mother was smart enough to photograph her Ice Cream Cone Krispie Treats ahead of time.

Always thinking, that girl.

In all honesty, these are a breeze to throw together.   Shhh, don’t tell.


First, gather your sprinkles…

And I also used Skittles.  Taste the rainbow. photo IMG_1677_zpsce73f77d.jpgNext up I made a double batch of my basic krispie treats and formed them into this shape…

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 12 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
  • 24 ice cream cones
  • 1 cup melted chocolate

  • 2 cups M&M Candy


  1. Dip tops of ice cream cones in the melted chocolate and tap off the excess.
  2. Dip them immediately into the sprinkles.
  3. Repeat with all the cones and set aside to allow the chocolate to harden.
  4. Fill each cone with a tablespoon or two if M&M candy.
  5. In large pot over low heat melt butter. When butter is melted, add in marshmallows stirring until melted. Remove from heat.
  6. Immediately add in your cereal.
  7. Spray hands lightly with cooking spray to help avoid sticking and form about 1/3 cup krispie mixture into a cone shape, so some of the mixture fits into the cone and the other remains on top. Pack the krispie so it resembles an ice cream cone.

    Shelly!! My first time on your site! I am making these for the 4th. Keep up the good work! I am so happy for you and your family. Talk about happily ever after, you are there! Love ya!

  2. So adorable! I can not believe you never got to show of your goodies. Such a bummer!! This happened to me, but with hot lasagna……

    We had to order pizza. 🙁

    Can’t get over the cuteness of these!

    Love the chocolate-rimmed ice cream cones with candy inside. Would be delicious with anything inside…ice cream or whatever. Too bad your treats didn’t make it to the BBQ. What did you end up taking to the BBQ then???

  4. Let me first say, this is genius! I love it and any child (and parent) would be impressed! I definitely need to make this and make myself a hero one day. : )
    Second, I’m so sorry about the mishap! Every time I’m packing up a cake for a bake sale or getting ready to take it to someone, I can almost see it smashed on the floor. I hope this will be the one and only time this happens to you.

  5. Such a sad ending to your story:( I always take photos asap too, because you never know what will happen. Glad that we were still able to see your cute treats even though they were crashed into! Hope you weren’t TOO hard on your son:)

  6. Something that could have easily happened in my house. Wonder what’s so hard about getting shoes on anyway. Ya made me smile!

    On another note when I was little my mom made a version of these for my classroom birthday. I still remember. It’s the best moms who make things like this for their kiddos (and don’t kill them when they wipe them out) thanks for the smile!
