Blob the mixture in an “ice cream” mound on your greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with nonpareils and sparkly sugar.
And because these cookies aren’t quite enough to send the kiddos into a full-blown sugar coma, fill your cake cones with one and a half strawberry marshmallows. If I had the time, I would have baked chocolate cake inside the cones (instructions right on the Keebler cone package) or even filled the cones with chocolate mousse. But I was getting tired, so marshmallows it was!
Next, make up some Royal Icing. It sounds fancy and intimidating. It’s not. Simply beat together 1 egg white, 1 t lemon juice and slowly add 1 1/2 C powdered sugar. Blend it on low speed until it’s smooth and creamy. Place some sloppily on the top of the cone. Don’t try to be perfect here. It’s not necessary. In fact if it drips a bit down the cone, it will look like melty ice cream once dried. How cool is that?
Place the meringues on top of the icing and allow them to dry. Top with an M&M “glued” on with some icing for extra cuteness.
Oh my word, aren’t these cute??? I love the way they turned out and I am uber proud of my idea!
To make them into Valentine’s, I bought some treat bags at Walmart. And because no project from my son would be complete without a dinosaur, I found some adorable Dino Valentine’s to complete the look. Here they are ready to go!
Oh Henry, you lucky, lucky boy. You don’t know what is about to hit ya!
And here is one for ME!
If you make these cuties, please link back to me and let me know that you made them! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Stay warm.
