This quick and easy Cornucopia Treat recipe uses everyday kitchen staples to create a yummy Thanksgiving-inspired treat your family will love.
All you need is:
- sugar cones
- a variety of fall candy
CORNUCOPIA TREAT RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS
First, add water to a small microwavable bowl.
Dip the end of the sugar cone into the water about 1-2 inches high.
Place the bowl and cone in the microwave for 25 seconds.
Take the cone out and immediately bend the end over a straw or spoon handle.
Hold the cone tightly over the straw or spoon handle for about 30 seconds to a minute or until it’s hard enough to keep its shape.
Gently, slide-out the straw and or spoon and let cool completely.
I recommend doing one cone at a time.
After the cones are all cooled, fill with delicious fall candy.
Place a piece of plastic wrap over the top of the candy and carefully tie with twine or string.
In about 12 minutes, you’ll have a Thanksgiving-inspired treat that’s sure to become a new favorite!

HOW LONG DOES IT REALLY TAKE TO MAKE CORNUCOPIA TREATS?
This no-bake Thanksgiving treat is so quick to whip up. This Cornucopia Treat recipe takes approximately 12 minutes. TOTAL. This includes:
- About 3 minutes to microwave the cones

- Around 6 minutes to fill each cone with candies and place wrap over it
CAN I USE REGULAR ICE CREAM CONES INSTEAD OF SUGAR CONES?
Nope. Unfortunately, you need to use a sugar cone because sugar cones have so much sugar in them that when heated it is easy to bend them and change their shape.
