December 25 and sweet treats go together like Mariah Carey and "All I Want for Christmas". But with all the prep required for the presents, meat and drinks, adding a fancy dessert to the list is too much. Instead, I add waffle cones and a few extra lolly bags to my trolley and have these instant, no-fuss candy cones ready to go. Perfect for extra guests or little ones alike.

Time: 30 seconds
Difficulty: Easy
Serves/makes: 12

  • 1 pack Choc & Vanilla Waffle Cones
  • 1 pack of Liquorice Allsorts
  • 1 pack of Pascall Marshmallows
  • 1 box of mini Oreos
  • 1 bag multicoloured Movie Time Popcorn
  • Optional: Ice cream cone holder


Grab a cone and fill up with treats of your choice. Start with the heavier, stiffer snacks (Allsorts and Oreos) and add the softer, smaller treats on top (marshmallows, popcorn).
