Cooking with Kids : Rainbow Pudding Cones

Kids can't wait to get a lick at these sweet snacks that look just like yummy ice cream cones! But since they're filled with a thick creamy mixture of pudding and whipped topping mix, they're less messy and way healthier for them than ice cream! These pudding cones are perfect for an after school snack, a party or even dessert! They are colorful, fun and easy enough for kids of all ages to make!

Rainbow Pudding Cones

1 1/2 cups cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4oz) instant vanilla pudding mix
3 envelopes whipped topping mix (Dream Whip)
8 cake ice cream cones
Sprinkles, mini color-coated baking chips or topping of your choice

*** In a mixing bowl, beat milk and pudding mix on low speed for 2 min. Blend in whipped topping mix, cover and refrigerate for atleast 1 hour. Spoon into cones and then with ice cream scoop add top scoop on cones. Sprinkle with toppings. Serve immediately.***

Other tips and ideas to try : 
1) Chocolate or pistachio pudding
2) Food coloring to turn the vanilla pudding into "strawberry, orange, etc." - really any color of "ice cream" you want.
3) Try coconut, chopped nuts, jimmies, mini choc. chips, nerds, etc. for the toppings. 

***Tip - These pudding cones need to be enjoyed soon after making them!! We tried to refrigerate the left overs and ended up with leaning towers of Pisa!!!


Wishing you peace, love and a little pixie dust,
