  • 1 Box Waffle Cones
  • Small Candies
  • 1 Can Green Frosting or white with Green Food Coloring
  • 1 Package Licorice
  • 1 Box Yellow Gum Drops


  • First, if your waffle cones are slanted, as mine were, you will have to carefully break away the taller part of the cone so it will stand up straight.
  • Frost your tree.
  • Wrap your licorice around your tree to look like a strand of lights or tinsel.
  • Decorate your tree by sticking small candies to the frosting.
  • Top your cone with a yellow Gum Drop & enjoy!
