Instructions to Make Ice Cream Cone Frogs

Step 1

Soften the Tootsie Roll by heating it on the defrost cycle in a microwave for 8-10 seconds. Flatten it out then cut it into strips to create the frogs mouths.

Step 2

Soften the red taffy using the same method. Flatten the taffy then cut out frog’s tongues. I thought it was fun to make really long tongues, but you can keep it simple and make short ones.

Step 3

Have all the mouths and tongues, plus two jumbo candy eyes ready to put on each frog before you start scooping out your ice cream.
