12 sugar cones ( I used color full cones to make it look more attractive )
optional -sprinkles. jelly beans and M&Ms

  • Pop popcorn according to package directions if you are using an instant popcorn mix or microwavable popcorn mix.
Popping Popcorn kernel on stove top :

  • Pour cooking oil in to heavy 3 quart or larger pan with a lid on top.
  • Heat the oil and pour the pop corn kernels in the oil , cover pan and turn the heat to medium high.
  • Once the popcorn starts to pop shake the pan gently with the cover on (donot ever remove the lid till you here the popping sound else it may pop up on your skin )
  • While popping slows 2-3 seconds apart, remove pan from heat and carefully transfer into a bowl .
  • After this stage is you want to munch some popcorn as is  you can season them with some salt and  munch them . But as we are making a sweet treat for kids we have little more work to do .
Recipe to make Popcorn on stove Top

Assembling Pop-corn cone  :
  •  Pour in the pop corns  in a large bowl and remove any unpopped kernels.
  • If you are filling your cones with M&Ms do this now and set aside.
  • Also, if you are garnishing with sprinkles, it's easiest to pour the sprinkles into a bowl so that you can dip your popcorn ball into them.
  • In a large pan melt butter over low heat. When melted add in marshmallows and stir until melted.
  • Pour the melted marshmallows over popcorn and stir until coated completely and evenly.
  • Immediately spray your hands lightly with cooking spray and form into 3" balls and press gently onto the cone. You need to do this gently so the cone doesn't break.
  • As soon as the popcorn is on the cone dip in your sprinkles.
  • Transfer to a wax paper lined counter or baking sheet to set up.
  • Individually wrap or store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
