dip dyed ice cream cones

The kids and I spent this last week visiting family in Las Vegas and laying out in the sun. It certainly feels like summer around here. As a welcome to this beautiful season sticky, drippy ice cream seems the only appropriate “hello”.

I dip dyed these cones to give a bit of celebration to our warm weather snack. They will give a colorful punch to your poolside party or warm evening celebration.

To make the dip dyed cones: Mix two or three drops of food coloring in a tall cup of warm water, stir until dissolved. Dip each cone into the color of your choice and lay out to dry (mine took about 24 hours to fully dry out). Fill with your favorite ice cream for a scrumptious summer snack.

    I have done this before..Dry them in the oven. What I did was put a cooling rack in the oven and turn on 170 degrees. Just watch them.. It does not take long. Sugar cones take longer then cake cones. They turn out beautiful !!!
