“Just try and stay out of my way. Just try! I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!”
I could not get that line out of my head as I was making these ice cream cones with my 3-year old, Ana.
And let me tell you about making sugary treats with a 3-year old! Any 3-year old, I’m sure! O.M. to the you know who!! I honestly was about to rip my hair out. With a smile on my face, of course. I think it was the Oreos that did it.
Prior to making these lovelies, we were adding “spider legs” to Oreo Cookies and covering them with frosting and chocolate sprinkles. I know. So good. But, as soon as I would get done with one, Ana would just grab it, smoosh it in between her hands and then eat it! She probably had about six, and that was more than enough to send her over the edge. Sugar high? No. This was like crack-high. She was bouncing off walls. Then she took a 2-hour nap. BUT not before we were done with our witch.
I could not photograph these guys because Ana wanted to stand right by my light source. Any ugly shadows in these photos are of a cute, dark haired little girl with big dark eyes. After all, these treats were for her and she knew it, thus she took advantage of every minute. And every crumb.
Yeah, I know, the photos are about the same. I’m telling you I could not get anything done; she took over my kitchen and all the food!
When making these, you have to work really really fast. It’s ice cream, and all the candy accessories made it quite challenging because, well, ice cream melts. If you decide to give these a go, take my advice; make sure you have all your candies out, cut up, and ready to go before placing that scoop of ice cream on top of a graham cracker. You will also need a few mouths that want to be fed mint chocolate chip ice cream, chocolate candies, licorice, and candy corn. That’s all.

- 2 whole graham crackers
- 4 scoops of mint chocolate chip ice cream
- 4 ice cream cones
- black string licorice
- round chocolate candies , I used Reese's pieces
- candy corn
- Break up the graham crackers and place 1 scoop of ice cream on top of each cracker.
- Top the ice cream with an ice cream cone.
- Cut up the licorice in about 2-inch lengths and place it on the sides of the ice cream head.
- Place candies for eyes.
- Add the candy corn as nose.
- Serve immediately or store in an airtight container and freeze. I froze a few of them for about 8 hours and they turned out great.
