Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Cones


Not all desserts need to take all day to make, nor do the need to be fussy souffle’s, (although I  do love a good fussy souffle).  Sometimes you just want a fun and fast desert! A trip to the local ice cream shop will not only cost you in the $5 a cone ridiculous price, but time and gas.  So why not bring the ice cream shop home to your family?  Considering the day that I made these is was 112 outside, so hot I could barely move!  Everyone Cheered! Everyone Cheers for Ice Cream!

1 tub microwavable dipping chocolate
6-12 sugar ice cream cones
a variety of colored sprinkles, chocolate jimmies, crushed nuts.  Really any flavors that your family likes.
1/2 gallon ice cream, on this occasion I used no sugar added banana split flavored ice cream.

Place different toppers in separate bowls.  Microwave chocolate according to package directions. Take a cone and dip in the melted chocolate and let excess drip off.  Quickly roll dipped cones in a single flavor or mix flavors for variety. ( If you do you will be bolder than this traditional preppy girl)
If you have a rack to place cones in that would be best.  If not you may have to enlist family members, a dangerous proposition in my family.  Let chocolate cool and hardened it only takes a couple of minutes or so.  Scoop out one, two, hey go for three scoops! It is Summer after all! Enjoy!


About the plaid and paisley kitchen

I am just like you, a modern woman juggling life, family, work, and always struggling to find time to work on my hobbies. As the wife of a very picky eater with very definitive likes and dislikes, (Mostly misconceptions of what something may taste like.) I can honestly say that every recipe on here is “Stevie Approved!” I am the Great-Granddaughter of German immigrants and I learned to cook in my mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens. As I grew and gained experience in my own kitchen I took the lessons I learned and branched out and started new traditions mixed with Old World styling. I was raised by a very artistic and talented mother, and if I inherited just a tad of her abilities then I consider myself very lucky. In primary and secondary schooling I was always heavily involved in art and drama. I still have a great passion for the theater. I think that a household should have a healthy dose of dramatic flair. I feel that food should be prepared with quality and fresh ingredients, and that meals should be served with love. I believe a home should be comfortable and beautiful at the same time, and that an organized home is a happy home!
