Homemade Ice Cream Cones {mini}

Making your own ice cream cones is fun and economical. The added benefit is no junky chemicals and guaranteed sweet dreams. Who doesn't like going to bed in a home that smells like an old fashioned candy store?

Pizzelle makers can be found at Thrift stores and garage sales for the perfect price. Who knows, your Grandma might just have one sitting around!

    Happy 1st Blue Monday, Lisa.
