  • 12 sugar or waffle cones
  • 1 bag green candy melts
  • 2 to 4 teaspoons coconut oil or vegetable shortening
  • Mini M&M candies
  • Star sprinkles
  • 12 frosted cupcakes homemade from your favorite recipe or store-bought


  • Prepare a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, place the green candy melts. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continuing heating in 30-second increments, stirring well after each. If the candy melts overheat or is not smooth enough to pour, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of coconut oil or vegetable shortening and stir well.
  • With your hand inside the cone, spoon the green over the cone. Tap gently to allow the excess to drip back into the bowl.
  • While the green candy melts are almost dry but still wet, press the candies and sprinkles into the cone.
  • Place on the prepared baking sheet to dry. When ready, place one cone on each cupcake.
