Halloween is officially over and in the books for another year now. The next holiday celebrated here is Thanksgiving.
While technically Thanksgiving isn’t a candy holiday, as is Halloween. That doesn’t stop us from needing to add some sugar and sweet treats for the kids here. I mean let’s face it turkey, the trimmings and pumpkin pie aren’t necessarily a kids’ favorite.
Plus, I am the proud mama to a Thanksgiving baby. That’s right; my youngest was born back in 2010 two days before Thanksgiving. So even though we clearly celebrate Thanksgiving, we also celebrate our younger daughter’s birthday. Last year, her actual birthday fell on Thanksgiving Day. So, she shared a birthday with the turkey!
So, I have to doubly get creative this time of the year with fun kid-friendly treats. Of course, traditional foods are still indeed served. Plus, we add pumpkin spice to the mix. On top of that, I add some tasty pumpkin cheesecake bars with chocolate cookie crust to the mix.
Still, my kids look for even sweeter treats. Thus, the Thanksgiving Sugar Cone Cornucopia Treats were born. Cornucopia is a big thing at Thanksgiving. Plus, candy corn is still available here. Both my own girls are never ones to pass up candy corn. Nor would they turn down sugar cones.
So, put the two together for this adorable Thanksgiving themed treat.
I start with a box of 12 sugar cones. So, one box will most certainly make twelves of these cornucopia treats. One small step including water and the microwave for 25 seconds, but then you simply add candy corn to the cones. Voila! You have Thanksgiving Sugar Cone Cornucopia Treats for all the kids and adults, too this Thanksgiving.
Plus, as a former class mom for 4 years straight, these cornucopia treats would be equally perfect for Thanksgiving themed class parties.

Thanksgiving Sugar Cone Cornucopia Treats
- Sugar Cones
- Fall Candy (I did 2 different M&M’s and Candy Corn Mix)
- Twine or String
- Plastic Wrap
- Straw or Spoon Handle
- Add water into a small bowl. Dip the end of the sugar cone into the water about 1-2 inches high.
- Place in microwave for 25 seconds. Take out and immediately bend the end over a straw or spoon handle. Hold tightly for about 30 seconds to a minute or until it’s hard enough to keep its shape. Slide out the straw and or spoon and let cool completely. ** Do ONE cone at a time.
- After the cones are all cooled, add the fall candy. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the top of the candy and tie with twine or string.
- Enjoy these cute little Cornucopias!
