Adorable DIY: Meringue Message Cones

meringue cookie ice cream cones

Is is just me, or is this one of the cutest ideas ever?!!

These “Secret Message Cones” from BHG are inspired by fortune cookies and featured as a creative homemade Valentine idea, but they would ALSO be a fabulous addition to birthday parties, bridal showers, and baby showers (especially a “Cravings” or “Pickles & Ice Cream” theme!)

You’ll need sugar cones, meringue cookies, and chocolate chips for the ice cream cone portion. (All can be store-bought.) For the homemade valentine, you’ll also need paper for the “message” and colorful nonpareils.

To modify this idea as a party favor, you can either tailor the inside message to your particular occasion OR fill the cone with something different like  jelly bellies, pink m&ms, or a flavored lip gloss, essentially using the ice cream cone as your “favor packaging”. Sweet!
