Bubbly Jell-O Parfait

This bubbly treat is perfect for kids and adults alike!
To make, just follow the simple directions:
1.  Make bubbly Jell-O according to the directions on a box of Sparkling White Grape Jell-O. Be sure to use club soda, seltzer, or ginger ale and follow the tips on the box for getting the gelatin to sparkle.
2. Chill the Jell-O in champagne flutes or parfait glasses. It is best to make these the day of the party so that they keep their bubbliness.
3.  Wind a metallic multicolored star garland up the stem of the glass for some extra pizzazz.

Now, grab a spoon and toast the New Year with a cool, sparkly dessert that wiggles!

Not only are these chocolate-covered cones a festive decorating, but they are a delicious sweet topping for a scoop of ice cream!

Sugar cones
Ice cream
Chocolate chips (one 12-ounce bag for 10 to 12 cones)
Fruit strips or shoestring licorice
1.  Spread melted chocolate chips over each sugar cone with a small spatula. Let the chocolate harden for about 1 hour (or 20 minutes in the refrigerator).
2.  For chinstraps, use icing to attach the ends of a fruit strip or a length of shoestring licorice to the inside of each cone.
Use icing to decorate the hats and attach sprinkles.
3.  Scoop some of your favorite ice-cream and plop these on top to celebrate!

We hope that you enjoy these tasty treats!

Happy New Year!
