Forget Me Not Cones

Forget Me Not Cones

1 package (3.9 ounces) chocolate instant pudding
1 cup cold milk
2 cups thawed whipped topping
10 oreo cookies, crushed, divided
12 ice cream cones
12 marshmallow flowers (recipe below)

Beat pudding mix and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in whipped topping and 3/4 cup cookie crumbs.

Spoon into ice cream cones; sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs to resemble dirt in flower pots. Flatten tops slightly with back of spoon.

Top with marshmallow flowers.

Marshmallow flowers
Flatten 12 large marshmallows, then press both sides of each marshmallow in colored sugar. Use clean kitchen shears to cut 5 (1/2-inch deep) slits in each marshmallow to resemble the petals of a flower. Cut 6 small gumdrops in half; place 1 gumdrop half, cut-side down, in center of each marshmallow flower.

-Marshmallow flowers and pudding mixture can be made ahead of time. Do not spoon pudding mixture into ice cream cones. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Store marshmallow flowers in airtight container at room temperature. Spoon pudding mixture into ice cream cones just before serving; top with marshmallow flowers.

-Instead of spooning the pudding mixture into the ice cream cups, spoon into resealable plastic bag. Seal the bag, then diagonally snip off one corner from bottom of bag. Squeeze the pudding mixture from bag into ice cream cones. Then, decorate as directed.
