Popcorn and peanuts with a marshmallow coating make the perfect "ice cream" for these cones. Softer than traditional popcorn balls, the built in holder makes them easier to eat.

12 cups popped popcorn
1 1/2 cups salted peanuts*
1 (10-ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
12 chocolate-dipped or plain ice cream cones

Combine popcorn and peanuts in large bowl; set aside.
Place butter in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 30-45 seconds or until melted. Add marshmallows; toss to coat marshmallows with butter. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, 2-3 minutes or until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is blended. Spoon over popcorn and peanuts; stir until well coated.
Place decorator sprinkles in shallow bowl. With buttered hands, shape 1 cup mixture into a ball; roll in sprinkles. Press coated ball into ice cream cone. Repeat with remaining mixture.

Use white, caramel, cheese or kettle-corn or a combination of these popcorns to give your ice cream cone treats a different flavor.
