Chocolate Sprinkle-dipped Ice Cream Cones

If you are thinking of ideas for a birthday party or if you just want to make a regular night of the week feel like a party, here you go.

We started buying cones for our nightly ice cream ritual because it was a nice form of portion control. Turns out, it’s so much more fun eating ice cream out of a cone. What is even more fun, is dipping it in chocolate.

All you need are cones, chocolate chips and sprinkles.

First put some chocolate chips in a double burner, or a homemade double burner like I use.

You just put about and inch or two of water in the bottom pan and your chocolate in the top. This will prevent the chocolate from burning in your pot. Make sure the top pan is positioned to leave a little gap for the steam to come out.

Once it is melted, just dip the cone in and then immediately dip it into a small bowl of sprinkles.

This is a fun activity for kids. (If you dare.)

You can make a little cone-drying station out of your cones box by punching some small holes in it.

Let it dry for 20 minutes or so, fill with ice cream and get the party started.

  1. Yummy!! This would be a fun activity for me after the kids go to bed. hahahaha. Thanks for sharing, it actually looks pretty easy to make these.

  2. I must not trust my own craftiness, because I’m looking at those beautiful cones and immediately thought, mine wouldn’t turn out like that πŸ™‚ They do look great and my daughter would be all about it. Good idea!

  3. Can’t wait to do this with the kids. So, are you telling me that one scoop is all you and John have now at night?

What do you think? I would really love to know!!
