So, you're on Pinterest, right? A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to a PINTEREST PARTY! I know, right? Awesome. It was so much fun and a really cool idea. I'll post more about it later, but my contribution came in the form of these babies:
Super easy to make! Just follow along :o)
2 tubes of refrigerated crescent roll dough
Orange food coloring
½ lb. sandwich spread
You'll also need cream horn cones... It sounds really strange, but they are actually pretty neat! I got mine at a kitchen store and paid only a couple of bucks for a box of six. J said they looked like tiny party hats :o)
Ok, first spread your dough out and pinch all of the seams together.
Next, cut the dough into six equal strips. Roll each strip so it makes a long, skinny snake (technical food terms here!)
Then, wrap each snake around your cream horn cones. Make sure there is cone sticking out of the top or else it might make removing them a little difficult.
Next, mix up a little orange food coloring (red and yellow make orange... in case you failed art) and paint it on the rolls with a basting brush. I added a couple of drops of water to thin it out a bit.
Bake according to the directions on the crescent tube.
Remove the tiny party hats to reveal a perfect cone that just screams, "stuff me!"
For the stuffing, I used chicken salad that I bought from my deli. You could use anything really. I wanted to make egg salad to stuff in it (as a ways to use up Easter eggs), but sadly, I do not know how to make it.
Put your sandwich spread in a plastic baggie.
Snip the corner off of the bag.
Fill your cones!
Finally, stick a leaf of lettuce in the top! I like the endive lettuce because it looks more like a carrot top.
There you have it! Cutsie little Easter sandwiches!
