Chocolate-Covered Ice Cream Cones

Chocolate-Covered Ice Cream Cones

Homemade Drumsticks


I was going through old photos and found an oldie but goodie: homemade Drumsticks from two summers ago.  I couldn’t wait to make them again, and we have since made them twice in the past week for BBQ parties.  They are so simple to make and your kids will love to help.  Two summers ago I melted a gourmet chocolate gift basket that we had received at Christmas to coat the ice cream cones.  This time I used leftover chocolate ganache from some wedding cakes that I had just made.  Use the chocolate coating, ice cream and toppings of your choice to take this childhood favorite up a notch.

Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time:

Total time: 
Serves: 1+
Use a variety of quality ice cream, chocolate, and toppings to take this childhood favorite up a notch.
  • Vanilla ice cream or your flavor of choice
  • Ice cream cones
  • Chocolate, melted, or chocolate ganache
  • Sprinkles, chopped nuts, coconut, etc.
  1. Melt the chocolate over low heat. (I like to melt mine in a pan on the warmer burner or in a fondue pot to ensure that it doesn't overheat and harden.)
  2. Working with one cone at a time, dip the top rim of the cone into the chocolate (or fill the cone with chocolate if you want to make it extra).
  3. Then scoop ice cream into the cones, making it into a nice round scoop on the top. (You can use a piece of plastic wrap to cover it and form into a ball, working quickly so that it doesn't melt.)
  4. Place the ice cream cones into the freezer for 30 minutes or until the ice cream hardens again. (The chocolate on the rim of the cone will harden to the ice cream and help secure the ice cream to the cone.)
  5. Working quickly, dip the ice cream scoop into the melted chocolate, completely coating it and gently tapping it to remove any excess.
  6. Sprinkle the top of the chocolate with the topping of your choice {chocolate or colored sprinkles, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, etc.}
  7. Place the cones back in the freezer to allow the chocolate and ice cream to set.
  8. Remove them from the freezer and serve them immediately.
