I saw something like this in Martha Stewart's magazine and since her recipes don't usually work out for me, I adapted it and made my own!
They are waffle ice cream cones with chocolate cake baked inside. We decided to go with a white-ish color (added vanilla which makes it slightly yellow) but you could just as easily add in some green or any other food coloring. We finished them off with powdered sugar and sprinkles in the shape of snowflakes.
My 10-year-old sister loved decorating them.

These were so much fun to make! Let me know if any of you are interested in seeing the recipe and I'll type it up with my variations, too. They'd also be fantastic with a thin layer of icing and white chocolate chips!
