Teepees - Letter "T"

1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 box of sugar cones
1 box of cake mix - I like to use Funfetti.
pretzel sticks

Using a muffin tin, fill the sugar cones with the cake mix. I stood mine up in cupcake holders so any batter that ran out wouldn't make a mess. Once the cake inside the cones has finished cooking, take it out of the oven and set it aside. Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Cut a small hole in the tops of the cones. Then dip the bottom and top of the cones in the chocolate. Add sprinkles to the bottom of the cones. Then put pretzel sticks at the top. Very cute and very yummy!

Here are some books I used with Olivia to teach her more about teepees and Indians. The books are long so we didn't read all of them, but the pictures are helpful.
