Kiddy Cornucopia Snacks

As prepared by Gourmet Mom,

When you ask people what they looks forward to most at Thanksgiving you’ll usually hear “turkey” or “pie.”  At our house, it’s all about the munchies!


I usually adhere to a pretty strict meal and snack schedule, but Thanksgiving is the one day of the year that I let the kids munch all day.  I put out all kinds of finger foods and they nibble themselves into a food coma.  In addition to fresh fruits, crackers and veggie trays, I like to have out one fun sweet treat for the kids (and adults!).

These Cornucopia Snacks are not only a cute and festive addition to your holiday table, the flavor combination is hard to resist for nibblers of any age. (I am a huge fan of cinnamon and chocolate!)

Also, since this recipe is super easy, you can put the kids to work making it while you put the finishing touches on Thanksgiving Dinner!  It’s a great way to get them involved in the kitchen.

First, start by making your cornucopia “filling”.  I used Cinnamon Burst Cheerios, honey roasted peanuts and mixed dried fruit.  You can get creative as you want (or even use this opportunity to clean out the pantry).  The Cinnamon Burst Cheerios are a great base for most flavor combinations!

Mix your ingredients in a medium bowl … let the munching begin!

Cornucopia Snack Mix Recipe

Take ice cream cones and dip them in melted semi-sweet chocolate.  I found that the easiest way is to hold the cone right at the tip and roll it in the chocolate.

Dipping Cones for Cornucopia Snacks

Then, dip open end of the dipped cone in yellow or gold sprinkles.  Lay on wax paper and use finger to smooth over the part where you were holding the cone.  Add extra sprinkles, if desired.

Finishing Cones for Cornucopia Snack Recipe

Let set completely (about 10 minutes) then fill with your snack mix.  So easy!  These would look gorgeous lined up on a wooden tray as the kids’ table centerpiece!
