You know when your kids come home from school they are starved, as if they had not had any food all day. This never ceases to amaze me. But this is nice for working moms who do not always get home at the same time the kids do or for moms who are home and can also have a snack while listening to the kid about their day at school.
What is really nice about these snacks is that you use plain ice cream cones so there really is no mess to clean up. They look good, are delicious, and have fruit, which is not always easy to get them to eat. And you control what you want to put in them.
To make it less messy, you can always use a pastry bag or sandwich bag with a end cut off to put these into the cup's without making a mess. Make sure the hole is big enough for the fruit to get through.
If you want, add what the kid's like, making sure the fruit you have washed is dry. You can add nuts or coconut and sprinkles on the top for that "boy that look's good" look.
Note: I also would dry the cherries on a paper towel so they do not cause the whipping cream to become runny.
I hope these are some help for you I think they are great and it gives them fruit which they need and something not filling like a lot of other things are. Enjoy!
