  • Yield: 5 Pilgrim Hats 1x


This is fun, edible activity to participate in with your little ones over Thanksgiving break! It’s all allergen friendly too so it’s a safe yet festive way to celebrate the holidays.


  • 5 gluten free ice cream cones
  • 5 store bought gluten free sugar cookies (I use Enjoy Life)
  • 1/2 c. nondairy chocolate, melted (I use Enjoy Life)
  • 5 vegan gummy candies (Trader Joe’s)
  • allergen friendly (like NoNo’s and Surf Sweets) candies or trail mix to stuff with


  1. Dip the ice cream cones into the melted chocolate to coat the tops. Place the edible goodies inside the cone and then place on top of the cookie.
  2. Secure the gummy candy on the cone (you might need to place something underneath to allow to set so it doesn’t fall off).
  3. Repeat for each cone.
  4. Take the leftover melted chocolate and pipe it along the edge where the cookie and ice cream cone meet. Pipe a belt buckle over the gummy candy.
