If you’re looking for ways to get your children involved in the kitchen and walk them step by step through a simple, kid-friendly snack, look no further than a dip-your-own-cone dessert night.
Little ones love the allure of choosing their own destiny, with dozens of cereals and salty or sweet snacks to choose from. What can make this activity even more exciting is to set no limits — nothing’s off the table, not even sour gummy worms, crushed candy bars, or potato chips.
Not only do they get to pick their own unique toppings, but they’ll also decide what dips they’ll dunk their favorite ice cream cones into. They’ll be amazed to see the smooth liquid dip harden around the rim of their ice cream cone, thanks to the addition of a little coconut oil, and they’ll be tickled to see the end result designed just how they engineered it in their head.
Below are a few of our favorite pairings, but we recommend letting your kids set the direction with this one. You might be amazed at the combinations they dream up!
