  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 5 Leprechaun Hats 1x


  • 5 gluten free ice cream cones
  • all natural green food coloring
  • 5 chocolate cookies (I used Enjoy Life’s cookies)
  • 5 mini cookies (I used Home Free cookies)
  • nondairy chocolate, melted
  • orange-colored jelly beans (I used Surf Sweets)
  • goodies of choice to stuff the insides of the hats with


  1. in a small bowl, pour a couple of drops of green food coloring and add several drops of water to it. Using a clean, unused paint brush, coat the ice cream cones with the food coloring, evenly coating it. Allow 15 minutes to dry.
  2. Clean your paint brush and use to “paint” the melted chocolate along the cone.
  3. “Glue” the mini cookies with the melted chocolate to the cone/hat. Place in the freezer to set.
  4. Add your goodies to stuff inside the ice cream cone. “Glue” the large cookie to close up the hat with more melted chocolate. Allow to set again.
  5. “Glue” an orange jelly bean to the mini cookie.
  6. Have fun smashing open for a surprise treat!
