They’re so simple to make … all you need are gumballs, Bugles, melting chocolate, sprinkles and candy pearls. I used white gumballs, pink pearlized gumballs and red candy pearls from SweetWorks. A small bowl of uncooked rice (my youngest son suggested the idea) came in very handy to hold the Bugles (cones) upright while I did the assembly of the ice cream cones …
- Place some Bugles in the rice and fill with melted candy.
- Place gumballs on chocolate filled Bugles, making sure that the gumball touches the melted candy (add a dot or two of melted candy if necessary).
- Decorate the tops of the gumballs with melted candy, sprinkles (non-pariels) and a red candy pearl (as a cherry). Let stand at room temp for a few minutes to allow candy to harden.
