4th of July Fruit Salad Cones

Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 6 jumbo ice cream cones
  • 1 large apple
  • 6-8 strawberries, halved
  • 3 oz. blueberries

Directions:

  1. Line ice cream cone with a cupcake liner. Slice apple into 1/8inch slices; and using a small meat star cookie cutter, stamp out stars from apple slices. Fill cone with blueberries, strawberries and apple stars.

NOTES:

  • For easy filling, use jumbo size cones.
  • Place a cupcake liner inside the cone to prevent it from getting soggy.
  • To offset the Ice Cream Cone Fruit Cups from being top heavy, I fill the bottom portion of the cone with candy. Aside from its weight utility, kids love the candy-filled surprise ending. My taste preference is for Skittles and they don’t melt, so even better. If you prefer to bypass the candy route you can fill the bottoms with rice, but . . . boring!
