My kids are always on the hunt for snacks. As you can see on my blog lately, I have a lot of snack ideas for kids. They especially love to have a snack when we are doing family activities, like watching a movie, playing a game or going to the zoo. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut and provide the same boring snack, but there are other times that I like to go all out and let them have a fun snack that’s easy to make!
These savory & sweet popcorn cones are one of those times where their snacking is made more fun! A good friend of mine actually gave me this idea– she said her grandmother would give her a popcorn mixes in an edible ice cream cone and she absolutely loved and cherished those times her grandma did that. I thought that was so sweet and such a genius idea, that I had to do it myself. She totally didn’t mind that I duplicated and added my own twist, so thank you for that Jess… you rock!
We love making popcorn on the stove, so we did that and added a little bit of sea salt to jazz it up. Then we used plain chocolate chips and Goldfish Whole Grain Grahams to give it a little sweetness and crunch! I don’t know about you, but I love sweet with the salty. It’s my favorite snack combination!
Just pop the popcorn, pick out the toppings, throw them in a cone and — wah lah! A yummy snack that’s just for those special moments with your family.
If you need to make them for on the go, or for an event like a sleepover or party, purchase some tall treat bags, stick a completed popcorn cone in one, tie it and add a ribbon. If you make these for a class party, feel free to add a fun note to it using paper and a hole punch. These are really easy for the kids to hold, plus they can eat the container afterwards! I think that’s the funnest part.
Here’s proof of how easy it is to make it. I really love the addition of the Goldfish. As you can see, my daughter thoroughly enjoys it too!
Check out the fun Goldfish counting game I created back in the Fall.. it’s complete with a FREE printable!
