Sugar Cone Christmas Trees
Looking for a gingerbread house alternative? Well, here's a fun and simple edible Christmas craft to do with the kids: SUGAR CONE CHRISTMAS TREES!! (Pardon the caps, but I'm feeling the Christmas spirit!)
Here's what you need:
*Green food coloring (to make the icing green)
*Candy for decorations (we used M&Ms)
Very simple directions:
*Turn the sugar cones upside down and slather the green icing on.
*Decorate with M&Ms, sprinkles, coconut, glitter, gumdrops, whatever you may have on hand.
*Stand back and look at your pretty work. . .then if you're like my children, go ahead and take a bite!

|I put wax paper down, but as you can see, |
the table got smeared a time or two! :)
