Any baseball fans out there?  I’m a huge Dodger fan.  

Have you seen the Dodger baseball hat cake I made for Alex last year or the picture of Charlie in his Dodger dog outfit?  

You what’s a great snack to eat while watching baseball?

POPCORN!

One snack I like to eat while watching baseball?  Popcorn!  

Cracker Jack, caramel corn, and now, these cute popcorn ice cream cones. It looks like ice cream, but it’s not.

I was inspired to make these treats after trying out Kettle Brand’s new line of popcorn.

Maple Bacon Popcorn Cones Ingredients

Popcorn Cones Ingredients:

  • popcorn of choice
  • mini marshmallows
  • butter
  • pecans, or nut of choice
  • chocolate chips
  • caramel

I used maple bacon popcorn, but any popcorn will do.  A flavorful popcorn like kettle corn or caramel corn works best. Their flavors won’t get lost in the melted sweet marshmallow.

Customize your cone fillings!

I filled the ice cream cones with pecans, caramel candies and chocolate chips because that’s what I happen to have on hand.  Get creative and use your favorite candies and gummies.  

Or, make these ice cream cones even more special by hiding secret messages or prizes inside. 

The possible variations of this these popcorn balls during Halloween and the subsequent holidays are endless!
