Get Your Snack On...4th of July Style!

Pin It Now!

I came up with this idea and decided to surprise the kids with an extra special dessert...RED, WHITE and BLUE style.  So if you are hosting a 4th of July party this year, give this one a try.  The best part about this dessert cone is that it doesn't melt!

-sliced strawberries
-blue or red sprinkles
-12 Sugar cones

-8oz softened cream cheese
-3TBL softened butter
-2/3 cup of powdered sugar
-2TBL skim milk
-1/8 tsp of Almond extract
Beat on medium speed until smooth.  Put filling in a piping bag or zip-lock baggie with the corner snipped off.

I used a red wicker basket and filled it first with white beans, then a mix of Sour Cherry Bombs and Red and Blue M&M's.  Then I arranged my cones in the basket to fill.  Begin by piping a little filling into each cone and then strawberries.  Repeat this step again.  Top with more filling and then add blueberries on top, or sprinkles, or BOTH!!

Keep chilled until ready to serve...and then prepare to WOW your guests!

Alternatives to the filling:
-cool whip
-creamsicle dip, recipe here
