As promised on my Easter post, here is a little tutorial on how I put my Easter Place Setting treats together - I saw the idea on Pinterest.
Here are the supplies - Ice Cream Cones, Rainbow Twizzlers Candy, Cadbury Mini Eggs
and Edible Grass (I found the grass at Rite Aid but also saw it at Target and Walmart)
I wasn't quite sure how to 'drill' the holes in each side of the cone for the handle without cracking the cone and then I had the bright idea to get out the spiked handles we use when we eat corn on the cob! First I pushed the spikes through, a bit down from the top as shown. I turned the handle clockwise and it made a perfect circle!
The circle needed to be wider to fit the Twizzler - so I turned the corn holder around and gently pushed it through the hole to the end of the corn handle.
And a perfect hole was created without cracking the cone! Whoo hoo!!
I cut off a bit of each end of the Twizzler candy handle to make a point so it went through the hole easily.
I stuck one end through each hole from the outside of the cone.
Then I cut some long pieces of the edible grass - 5" or so - and stuck them into the cone.
Then I added my treat - in this case - Cadbury Easter Eggs - six of them fit. The green edible grass is flavored with apple, the pink - cherry and the blue - blue raspberry. It's made of potato starch.
These were so easy to put together once I figured out how to do the holes!
