Thanksgiving Cornucopias

I saw this idea on Scribbit, and just fell in love with the idea of having these little cornucopia treats at each place setting for Thanksgiving dinner!


You might even have the materials on hand to make these already. All you need is some sugar ice cream cones and some small candies. 

To make the little cornucopias, heat water in teakettle and put pointed end of a sugar cone into spout. Let steam until softened (about 1 minute.) Gently curve end 1/2 inch from tip and hold for about 15 seconds.
Now they are ready to be filled.
Runts work particularly well because of their fruit shapes.
A little plastic wrap and ribbon holds them until they are ready to be eaten.
Happy Thanksgiving!
