I made these for a bake sale that we had at school. I made them a little bit different I made the cupcakes as directions give on the box and then place the ice ceam cones on top of the batter that was alread placed in the muffin tin pan. Then once cooled pull the cupcake liner off and decorate as desired.

I love this recipe. I remember eating these when I was little. They're just perfect for birthday parties with small children. You don't have to worry about them eating the paper or foil cupcake cups.

I remember my mom making these when I was a kid. When I saw this recipe, I couldn't wait to go home and make them. They taste just as good.

2 year olds loved 'em

We had a birthday party for my daughter and 6 of her friends who all turn 2 around the same time. I made these minus the candy bars and they were a big hit! A very novel eating experience. While the recipe says to make the day of serving and another reviewer mentioned sogginess, I discovered that only the cones that are frosted become soggy the next day. I had a few extras and left them home, unfrosted. They next day, I frosted each as they were ready to be eaten--just as good as the originals. I did, however, have to toss the leftover frosted ones.
