I used to believe that pecan and pumpkin pies were the only desserts you could serve for a Thanksgiving feast. But, throughout my years eating and hosting Thanksgiving dinners, I've changed my mind. These fresh-fruit cornucopias make a healthy yet festive addition to any Thanksgiving dessert table.

Fruit Cornucopias Directions

Step One: The first step is to make the ends of your waffle cones curved like a cornucopia. First, I dunked the ends of the cones into a bowl of water for a few seconds. Then, I microwaved the cone for about 20 seconds to soften it (timing might vary depending on your microwave, so be careful you don't start burning it).

Step Two: Next, using a towel to prevent your hands from burning, gently mold the end of the warm cone upwards into a bit of a curl. Let it cool.

Step Three: Microwave a bowl of white chocolate chips. I dipped my waffle cones into the white chocolate and then sprinkled them with some orange sprinkles for a fun touch.

How to Get Kids to Ski for Free in Utah

Step Four: I let my cones dry on wire racks. This also gave the chocolate time to re-harden.

Step Five: Lastly, I filled each cornucopia with fresh fruit. I used slices of mango, cantaloupe, clementine, strawberries, blackberries, and red, and green grapes. Feel free to use whatever fruit you like the best, but make sure you have a variety of pretty colors. That will really make your display pop.
