  12. Love! My daughter and I will definitely be making these along with several other ideas for Christmas bake sale/easy giveaways for friends to save money on gifts 😉 Thanks for the idea. Wish there were another way to get the cone shape in case I don’t find the right waffle cones. Any other ideas for Christmas baking? Angels maybe? Please do share if so.Thanks Heidi in advance for follow up.

    • Angels would be cute too! You would just turn the cones upside down. Or if you could only find regular shaped cones, you could do Christmas bells instead.

  13. Oh my goodnesss, those are so cute!!

  14. These are so adorable and I love how you shaped the trees! I would love if you would share this at my blog party, Celebrate It!It is all about celebrating our everyday wonderful lives! http://thefreshmancook.blogspot.com/2014/11/celebrate-it-blog-party-18.html

  15. This are really cute, I want to make these for a my daughters class as a birthday treat, but it’s a peanut/ peanut butter free zone. Does anyone have any ideas of what else the bottom of the tree can be other than a Reese peanut butter cup? I know I can do with out it, but it’s really cute

  16. Found this at the Ginger Snap Crafts Link Party! I love having fun with food! So adorable! Can’t wait to try it!

  17. Made a trial run of these last week. Super cute. Loved them, however they all got eaten right away and I’m not sure how long they will “last.” Any idea how long they could sit out uncovered before going stale? No containers to store them in. Making again for thanksgiving tomorrow, but would rather make tonight rather than tomorrow.. thanks in advance.

  18. I love them! So cute 😀

  23. That is the most creative idea! It’s about as big as our tree, but probably ten times tastier!
