The time has come– to do another home purge!

Savory & Sweet Popcorn Cones – A fun snack for families!

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! read more
