These are great favors for kids!

Ingredients

8 ice cream sugar cones
3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted
Assorted fall candies
8 pieces (2x3/4-inch) lightweight cardboard, optional

Instructions

Dip edges of cones into melted chocolate; let stand on wire racks or wax paper until chocolate is firm. Place each cone on its side. They will begin to look like a mini-cornucopia. Fill cones with candy corns, candy pumpkins and assorted colorful yummies. You may attach a place card to the top of each horn by dabbing a bit of melted chocolate to the top side and when nearly dry, attach place card gently. Makes 8.
