Edible Thanksgiving Placeholders or Party Favors

I am sure most of you have all you need at home already for these adorable and edible cornucopia place holders. (Especially if you kids acquired as much candy as our home on Halloween)

We will use the Turkeys we made last year for the adults, but since our numbers have grown I thought I would make something a little different for the kids.
All you need are the following:
  1. Sugar Cones
  2. Chocolate chips and sprinkles (optional)
  3. Candy-ie Runts, skittles, M&M’s, jawbreakers, starbursts etc.
  4. Cellophane Bags
  5. Paper for place cards
This first step is optional but thought it made them a little more decorative and festive.

Simply melt some chocolate in a microwave safe shallow bowl.  Twist the tops of the cones in the chocolate and then cover with sprinkles.  Allow to dry completely on a drying rack.

Fill with candy.-Runts would be adorable for this activity, we  just did not have any in our Halloween stash. Hershey Kisses and starbursts are great for fillers in the bottom of the cone.

Place in a cellophane bag and close the end with a card.

Also check out the Chocolate placeholders I made last year.

I did these without the kids around so they would not realize how much was taken from their stashes but this would be an easy activity for kids ages 3 and up.

I will try to blog one more time with my favorite pie recipe but if not Happy Thanksgiving!!
