These adorable Cornucopias are so simple to make and a cute place setting idea for Thanksgiving! You can fill them with any treats you like!
To make the Sugar Cone Cornucopia:
1. Heat a pot of water until boiling, then turn off heat.
2. Use a heatproof measuring cup to scoop up some water and then pour the hot water into a sugar cone, filling it about halfway. Immediately dump the water from the cone back into the pot.
3. Dip the bottom half of the cone into the hot water (just dip and immediately remove), then place the cone in the microwave for 10-20 seconds until the cone has softened a bit.
4. Gently (and carefully, the cone will be hot) use the rounded handle of a wooden spoon (or something similar) to roll/bend the end of the cone up. I held the cone (flat) against the counter and pressed the spoon where I want the cone to bend, then applied pressure to roll/bend the cone. Hold in place 15 seconds or so while it cools to help it retain the new shape.
There is a bit of a learning curve and you will likely break a cone or two. You’ll have to experiment a bit with how much moisture and how much heat is needed to soften the cones just enough, without them becoming totally soggy.
5. Set the cones upright (cone opening on the counter) and allow to dry (this will take an hour or so).
Once fully dry, you can place the cones in an airtight container (such as a ziplock bag) and set aside until you are ready to fill them with goodies.
Fill cornucopia cones with snack mix, cereal, m&m’s, popcorn, nuts, or any assortment of snacks.
