One of the most popular ways to serve ice cream currently is with a dipped cone. If you’ve ever wondered how to make chocolate dipped cones, you might be surprised just how easy they are to make yourself in just a few minutes. While you can buy them already dipped, they taste even better if you make them. Plus, you can take your dipped waffle cone to the next level by adding colorful sprinkles to your ice cream cone. And who doesn’t love that?
To make them, you simply need some chocolate chips, cones, sprinkles, a small rubber scraper and a sort glass to dry them.
I like to paint the chocolate on the cone upside down with the rubber scraper rather than actually dip them so I can control exactly where the chocolate goes. The short glass works great for waffle cones so they can have a chance to dry. If you are using traditional cones you can skip the glass altogether.
- 6 waffle cones
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
- ½ teaspoon vegetable oil (optional)
- assorted sprinkles
- Melt chocolate in microwave, just until melted, stirring often.
- Stir in oil (if desired) to create an extra smooth consistency.
- Tilting cone down slightly, paint melted chocolate all around the edge with a small rubber scraper.
- Immediately sprinkle your favorite sprinkles over the chocolate.
- Place cone in short glass to dry.
- Store in airtight container if not serving immediately after chocolate is set.
Once I was finished with our cones, I knew just what ice cream I wanted to serve in them.
And since anything caramel is loved as well, I decided to try the Kemps Caramel Cow Tracks.
I surprised my youngest cherry ice cream lover with a dollop of whipped cream and a cherry along with the chocolate dipped cone with sprinkles. You should have seen the look on his face when he saw first saw his dessert. It was huge for such a little guy, but I helped him to finish it all.
My two oldest boys really wanted to try out the Caramel Cow Tracks.
While they loved the ribbons of caramel, they especially loved the cow chocolates filled with a caramel surprise.
Now we have another regular to add to our favorite ice cream list. We had so much fun sitting outside enjoying our ice cream on a hot day while the sun was going down.
