Christmas Tree Cones! Great Christmas Countdown Activity or for Christmas Parties!

  • Author: Jen


  • Sugar Cones
  • Frosting (packaged or homemade)
  • Green food coloring for frosting (or use natural food coloring to make frosting green)
  • Favorite candies to decorate the tree – we used m&ms, gum drops, & sprinkles but you could use anything & everything you want to make it creative
  • Pull-apart licorice (if you want to use as garland on your tree). We originally bought regular licorice as you can see on our tray, but realized we didn’t have enough cones, so my hubby went out & got the pull-apart licorice which worked much better


This is a simple treat where you just set out all the candies & frosting and let kids decorate their own Christmas Tree Cones! I gave our girls plastic knives & they had fun putting the frosting on first & then adding whatever candies & licorice they wanted on their tree. After they were done, they had fun devouring their Christmas tree cones!
