Even preschoolers can help decorate these edible evergreens.

1. Turn empty ice cream cones upside down on a sheet of waxed paper. Sugar cones work best.

2. Add green food coloring to frosting (icing sugar mixed with milk and butter and a drop or two of peppermint flavouring, if you like). Make sure it’s not too runny but thin enough for little ones to work with.

3. Using a spatula (or even clean fingers!) slather the cones with the frosting until completely covered.

4. Decorate with coconut, sprinkles, chocolate chips or assorted candies.
