Here’s a fast and easy way to add a little fun to your Thanksgiving table. These cornucopia couldn’t be easier. You can easily make place cards for your table or use them as party favors . . . . Hmm - Maybe you should just make them for the “kid table” – then everyone will want to sit there!
Cornucopia Place Cards or Party Favors
Here’s what you need:
Ice Cream Waffle Cones
Semisweet Chocolate, Melted
Assorted Fall Candy
Cardstock if making place cards
Small craft paint brush
Here’s what you do:
Melt the chocolate in a small bowl (Place in microwave for 30-40 seconds. Stir, continue to heat in 20 second intervals until melted). I used the paintbrush to coat the edges of the ice cream cones. (I tried dipping them, but since the edges aren’t even it didn’t work too well). Stand each cone in a juice glass to allow the chocolate to harden.
If you are doing party favors – that’s it – just fill with candy.
If you want to make the place cards, prepare small cards (about 1″ x 2″). You can hand write them, print them on your computer, or better yet, let you kids make them! Lay the cone on its side and attach cards with a little melted chocolate. Once the chocolate has hardened, fill with candy. Easy-Peasy and so much fun!
