Candy Cornucopia

The perfect party favor for Thanksgiving dinner! Imagine a little cornucopia treat at each place setting.

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; hold for 15 seconds. Steam 1 side of cone's open end; press to flatten (so cone won't roll). Let cool until set. Dip edge in melted white chocolate and roll in chopped pistachios.

Refrigerate until set. Fill with jelly beans and serve, or store in a container in a cool, dry place for up to 2 days.


  1. Oh I love this idea! What a great party favor treat idea. Another variation would to add fruit shaped fruit snacks too!

  2. super idea and great to use as an activity for retirement homes

  3. I made these for my Sunday School class. I used the
    plain cone, filled with candy, topped with cello paper and tiled a ribbon around that to hold on the cello paper. The ribbon also held a card explaining the cornucopia meaning. The kids loved them.
