I hosted craft night last week. Fun, fun, fun as always! I was in the mood for an ice cream dessert and went to the store with no flavor in particular on my mind, just ice cream. I came home with Keebler waffle cones and a carton each of mango and strawberry sorbet. Then I got to thinking about the chocolate dipped waffle cones at Marble Slab and wishing I would have thought to stop by there and buy some of those instead.
What? You didn't know that you can just buy the cones? Actually I wouldn't have known either, except for the fact that when Noah was younger he didn't like ice cream. Whenever we would stop at Marble Slab, or any ice cream place for that matter, his standard order was "just the cone".
Back to the point, since I already had the plain waffle cones, I jazzed them up with some Baker's chocolate I had in the pantry. Now that was easy! And cost effective, too! One Marble Slab chocolate dipped cone back in the day was $1.50. My cones came to a total of $.50 each! And yummy......
What you need:
One box of waffle cones (12)
One box of Baker's chocolate
a handy dandy popsicle mold set from Target (See my set here.)
Set up the empty popsicle molds. Melt the whole box of chocolate according to directions on the product. Dip the top of the cone into the chocolate and garnish with your favorite sprinkles. Set in the popsicle mold and repeat with remaining cones. If you don't have a popsicle mold, you could also turn an egg carton upside down and cut holes in the egg "cups" and use that to hold the cones.
When all the cones have been dipped and are resting in the molds, spoon a small amount of leftover chocolate into the bottom of the cone to prevent ice cream drips. Because who wants a drippy cone, and who doesn't LOVE a little bit of a chocolate surprise in that last bite!
Place in refrigerator until chocolate is set.
Spoon one scoop of strawberry and another scoop of mango sorbet into the cone and enjoy a very special treat!
