Ingredients
  

  • 24 sugar ice cream cones
  • 1 package package yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup cup chocolate frosting
  • 24 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 16 oz vanilla frosting
  • 1/4 tsp orange food coloring
  • 12 green apple Jolly Rancher Chews cut in half
  • Purple nonpareils (sprinkles)

Instructions
 

  • Cover the top of a 10-in. fluted tube pan with a double layer of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Using a skewer or paring knife, poke 12 holes in the foil, making one hole in the center and eleven holes around it, about 2-1/2 in. apart. Gently insert a cone in each hole, leaving the top 1 in. of cone above the foil.
  • Prepare the cake batter according to the package directions.
  • Spoon1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon batter into each cone.
  • Bake at 350°F for 14-16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Transfer them to a wire rack to cool.
  • Repeat with remaining cones and additional batter.
  • With the remaining batter, bake a few cupcakes too (according to the cake package directions).
  • Spread1 teaspoon chocolate frosting onto the center of each chocolate wafer cookie. Top with cone, cake side down.
  • In a large bowl, beat vanilla frosting and food coloring.
  • Cut a small hole in the tip of a pastry bag (or in a corner of a food-safe plastic bag) insert a #45 round tip. Fill the bag with your orange-colored frosting. Pipe the frosting around the cone rims; attach the Jolly Rancher candies for buckles.
  • Frost the cupcakes with any remaining frosting, sprinkle with nonpareils, and enjoy.
