Edible Pilgrim Hats

These adorable (and edible!) Pilgrim hat favors will decorate any pretty holiday table. Turn them over to use as a treat cup and fill with your favorite treats.


colored ice cream cones
red fruit leather
yellow fruit leather
yellow sugar sprinkles
Karo syrup
chocolate wafer melts
1- small-sized, unused paintbrush
1- medium-sized, unused paintbrush 


Plain Pilgrim Hat
Wrap red fruit leather around the middle of the ice cream cone, right under the lip of the cone. Wrap one end of the fruit leather over the other, pressing the ends to make them stick together.

Cut a piece of the yellow fruit leather the same width as the red fruit leather, then lengthwise into a small square. Place the yellow square on top of the red band, forming the "buckle" on the hat. Using the small paintbrush, paint a little bit of Karo syrup onto the yellow square and sprinkle with the yellow sugar.

Chocolate Covered Pilgrim Hat
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the candy melts at 30-second intervals, stirring frequently, until melted. Using the medium-sized paintbrush, paint the chocolate over the entire cone, making sure to completely cover the whole cone. Set cones in refrigerator for 5 minutes to harden chocolate.

Once the chocolate has hardened, wrap red fruit leather around the middle of the ice cream cone, right under the lip of the cone. Wrap one end of the fruit leather over the other, pressing the ends to make them stick together.

Cut a piece of the yellow fruit leather the same width as the red fruit leather, then lengthwise into a small square. Place the yellow square on top of the red band, forming the "buckle" on the hat. Using the small paintbrush, paint a little bit of Karo syrup onto the yellow square and sprinkle with the yellow sugar.

For Treat Cups: Fill with your favorite snacks like caramel corn, Trix cereal, trail mix, popcorn, etc. You can even fill them with pudding or yogurt. Just don't forget the spoon.
