Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Cones

Memorial Day Weekend is the kick-off to summer and to us that usually means going to the beach, seeing lots of friends, eating hot dogs, chicken fingers and lots of ice-cream!!  It may not look the same this year, but we are going to do our best to continue those traditions.  This weekend we are hoping to see friends at the beach at a distance, hot dogs are on the menu and we are kicking it off with yummy chocolate dipped ice-cream cones! You can check out how easy these are to make in my video here.  

These Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream cones come together in minutes and they are a great way to make ice-cream a little more special this weekend!   I used sprinkles because they are a favorite around here (in case you couldn’t tell).   If you don’t have sprinkles or don’t like them chopped nuts would be super yummy as well (especially as an adult version).  Dark Chocolate and pistachio with vanilla ice-cream would be my ideal combo!  I actually have another box of cones and I think I may make some more.   

PS I promise next Five Ingredient Friday will not include sprinkles and chocolate

  • 12 sugar cones
  • 1 cup bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate I used a combination of both
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles you could also do chopped nuts - pistachios would be really yummy!


  • Set up a piece of parchment paper or a cooling rack for the cones to dry
  • Pour your sprinkles into a small bowl
  • Pour your chocolate into a separate glass bowl that can be placed in the microwave
  • Microwave on high for 1 minute, take out and stir until there are no chunks and it is smooth. If it is not smooth, microwave in 10-20 second intervals. You can burn your chocolate so be careful to do it in short increments. Every microwave is different but it took mine 1 minute + 20 seconds.
  • Dip and twist the top of each cone into the melted chocolate and shake off any excess
  • Then dip into the sprinkle bowl and place onto the rack or parchment paper
  • Repeat steps 5 & 6 with the rest of your cones
  • They will take about 10 minutes to harden. Serve that day store in a sealed container or bag for up to one month.
