QUESTION:  What is a fun, easy treat that...
  • ...travels well?
  • ...has the possibility of offering 12 seconds of entertainment to a kid's lunch bag?
  • ...is appreciated at any potluck?
ANSWER:  Why none other than the... (cue for exciting music) ...I-B-T-T-F-C!!!  

As the kids play with this yummylishous goodie, adults can snack away without anyone knowing how many they've consumed (especially since calories don't count while standing around).




Step 1: Just a Few Items Required...

Picture of Just a Few Items Required...
  • Leftover frosted cake, or if you prefer...make a cake and frost it 
  • Mini ice cream cups
  • Candy Melts
  • Sprinkles
  • M&Ms (optional)

Step 2: Mix It Up...

Place the frosted cake in a bowl and using your (clean!) hands, combine the frosting and cake until you can form a smooth dough ball.

Step 3: Stuff It...

Pinch a piece of the dough and place it in the mini cone.

Using the palm of your hands, roll another piece of dough into a ball and secure it on top of the cone.

Chill approximately 1/2 hour, or until the top dough ball is firmly set on the stuffed cone when turned on it's side.

Step 4: Dip It...

Following manufacturer's directions, heat the candy melts until smooth.

Dip the chilled cones into heated candy melts and add candy sprinkles.  (I like to place a M&M on top)

Let cool and enjoy!

But I like this a lot.

Genius! These are so cute! So have to make these.

Funny, for some reason little food looks so much more appealing than oversized portions. I guess I figure I'll be eating less if I go with smaller portions, but in truth I end up eating 4X as much.

So stinkin' cute!

These are so awesome and creative! I am not a big fan of cake but for some reason love cake pops. These have the candy coating and taste just like them. Now I don't have to throw leftover cake out anymore. :)

kcli (author)mehlani2013-08-23

Haha...my mom is always pushing leftover cake on me to take home. I should have her make these instead!
