Rice Krispie Treat "Ice Cream Scoops"
Begin to melt the butter over low heat in a medium or large saucepan.
Add the marshmallows to the saucepan and stir.
Continue to stir often, until about 75% of the marshmallows are melted.
Remove the pan from the heat and continue to stir, smashing the marshmallows using a rubber spatula or the back of a wooden spoon, until the marshmallows completely melt and become smooth.
Stir in the Rice Krispies cereal and set aside to cool slightly.
Cones, chocolate, and candy
Hold one ice cream cone in your hand, turn it upside down, and dip the top edge into melted dark cocoa candy melts.
Lift the cone out of the chocolate and shake it until all the excess chocolate drips off.
Turn the cone right side up and set on the counter.
Immediately fill the cone with candy.
Spray an ice cream scoop with non-stick spray or grease it with butter.
Scoop out a nice round mound of the rice krispie treat mixture and place it on top of the chocolate-dipped candy-filled ice cream cone.
Pop the ice cream cone into the freezer for 3-5 minutes just until the chocolate candy melts harden.
Repeat dipping, filling and topping one cone at a time until all 16 are created.
These treats are best if served the day they are made but they will stay fresh if stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days.The calories are calculated using 1 ounce of Milk Chocolate M&M's in each Rice Krispie Treat Ice Cream Cone.
