How to make Mini Fruit Cones
Anyone who knows me, knows I cannot cook. However, I do get creative food ideas every once in a while, so they need to come out! This one I am particularly happy with. I was in charge of bringing the fruit to a 4th of July party, so I needed to think of a more creative way to present it than just a bowl. And DING! a light goes off- mini fruit cones ! I worked out the idea in my head, then made it happen. Here’s the tutorial for the perfect party snack Mini Fruit Cones

First, cut all the fruit you want – I went all melon because then it looks like ice cream, but you can use any fruits. Clean them, cut them into workable sizes, and start BALLING ! We kept all the sizes in separate bowls so it made assembling easier.
And you will have lots of fruit leftover that looks like rotary dial phones! (we cut up that fruit and served it in a large bowl and it was yummy)
Here is the dish of fruit kabobs we assembled. We mixed up what fruits were on the top and bottom, too. In the bottom of each cone, though is a cherry de-stemmed.
Most Important Tip! The kabob assembly can be done the night before, but wait to place the kabob in the cone until the day they will be served because the cone will get soft after 3 hours.
And ta-da! Mini fruit cones assembled and ready to be loved!
