How to Make your Own Festive Christmas Sweet Cones
Whether you’re looking to make fun, Christmas party favours, or want to treat someone on the nice list this year, a Christmas sweet cone is the perfect way to spread some festive cheer!
Keep reading to find out how you can make Christmas sweet cones at home in just 6 simple steps and which seasonal sweets are best to use.
What are sweet cones?
A sweet cone is exactly how it sounds - a cone filled with delicious sweets! Typically using clear cellophane bags, these cones are super quick and easy to make yourself at home and can be used for any occasion. From weddings and Valentine’s Day to baby showers and children’s parties. The opportunities to enjoy a sweet cone are endless. You can even decorate them to match the theme of the party by adding stickers, ribbons and appropriately coloured sweets.
How to make Christmas sweet cones in 6 easy steps
Making your own Christmas sweet cones couldn’t be easier! Just follow these 6 simple steps:
- Before starting there are a couple of things you’ll need to consider. First of all, decide how many cones you want to make and what size will be best - small, medium or large. You can pick up the cone bags from many online retailers for a very affordable price.
- Once you have your bags, decorate the front of them with some festive stickers. Here you can really let your creative side shine! You can create a Rudolph or Santa face, add some Christmas tree stickers and red, gold and green ribbons to make it ultra-festive. This would also be a fun activity to do with your children for them to hand out to other students or teachers before school breaks up for the holidays.
- Now the fun really begins…add the first layer of sweets into the cone using a tablespoon for measurement and ease. You can add as much or as little as you like, it’s totally down to you.
- With the first layer of sweets at the bottom, you’ll then be able to stand the cone up in a tall glass. This will make adding the rest of the sweets much easier.
- Add the rest of the sweets layer by layer until you get close to the top. Depending on the size of the cone, we’d suggest only using 3 or 4 different types of sweets so you can have a good amount of each without them getting lost.
- To finish off, simply pinch the top of the bag and secure it with some ribbon.
