Elf Hats Holiday Treats Recipe for Christmas

Looking for easy holiday treats to make this Christmas season? Elf hats are a fun and easy holiday treat and perfect for kids to make or help mom or dad make. And it’s easy to turn these elf hats into ice cream cones during the winter months.

Just play around with the colors (or keep them the same). You could easily add mint to make mint ice cream cones and cherry for a cherry on top of a vanilla cone.

They are a tasty treat and so cute, too. These elf hats only require four ingredients that are easy to find. They don’t take long to make, and you can make as few or as many as you would like. Although I recommend making lots of them.
