Edible Treat Bowls

On one of our high cal days, we decided to get ice cream.  The Mr wanted waffle cone bowls and I agreed but inside I was going "great, those will go stale and we'll find them in two years."  That's how it usually goes but then I thought I could actually use them for an upcoming gathering with friends.  Not necessarily as ice cream bowls but as...


You only need a few things.  Your waffle bowls, some fun candy for the current season like these pumpkins and some melting wafers (or chocolate chips will work if you don't have those.)


Split the pumpkin in half.


Melt the candy wafers for 20-30 seconds and grab a toothpick.


Put the melted wafer on the back of the candy to act as the glue.


Push it onto the side of the bowl and repeat in whatever pattern you like.


You can use other candies like these caramel candy corn.


Because they are thin on their own, you can just put the candy "glue" on the back.


Glue them onto the bowl in a fun pattern.


You can fill them with candy or other treats.  Of course you can always scoop in some ice cream if you want to make a birthday or Halloween party bowl a little snazzy as well.


You could use them for the holidays using different candies like gumdrops for Christmas or jellybeans for Easter.  They can be fun additions to each table at a bridal or baby shower and full of Jordan almonds, mints or other snacks.  Want to bring trail mix, nuts or something smaller to a potluck?  Add it to the bowl and no worries about having to keep track of someone swiping one of your "good" bowls.
