3 Ways to Jazz Up Ice Cream Cones


  • For the Baked Alaska Cone:
  • <br>
  • Large waffle cone
  • Neapolitan ice cream
  • Meringue 2 egg whites + 2 tablespoons sugar
  • A culinary torch
  • <br>
  • For the Rainbow Drumstick:
  • <br>
  • Medium waffle cone
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Homemade Magic Shell 1/2 cup chocolate chips + 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • Rainbow sprinkles
  • Chopped nuts
  • <br>
  • For the Circus Animal Cookie Cone:
  • <br>
  • Large waffle cone
  • 3 marshmallows melted
  • 10 crushed circus animal cookies
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • Pink sprinkles
  • Rainbow nonpareils


  • For the Baked Alaska Cone, fill a large waffle cone with one scoop of Neapolitan ice cream. Freeze for one hour, or until ice cream is firm.
  • Next, make the meringue topping. In a medium bowl, separate 2 egg whites and whip them on high speed. Once frothy, slowly add in the sugar. Continue whipping until fluffy, white stiff peaks form.
  • When you’re ready to serve the cone, coat the ice cream in meringue, forming little peaks with a fork. Toast with a culinary torch until golden brown. Enjoy immediately!
  • For the Rainbow Drumstick, begin by making the Homemade Magic Shell. Melt chocolate chips with coconut oil in the microwave until completely smooth. Then, pour a bit of the chocolate shell inside of a small waffle cone. Turn the cone over and roll it around in your hand, letting the excess chocolate drip out and coat the entire inside of the cone.
  • Next, top the cone with one round scoop of vanilla ice cream and freeze for an hour until the ice cream is firm.
  • Once firm, dip the ice cream in Magic Shell and quickly roll the cone in a mixture of chopped nuts and rainbow sprinkles. (Be sure to work fast, as the chocolate shell will harden quickly once it touches the ice cream!)
  • Serve immediately, or store in the freezer until ready to eat!
  • For the Circus Animal Cookie Cone, start by crushing up frosted circus animal cookies into small pieces. Then, heat 3 large marshmallows in the microwave for about 30 seconds (or until they puff up.)
  • Next, stir the marshmallows and coat them outside the top portion of a large waffle cone. Quickly roll the marshmallow-coated cone into the animal cookie crumbs, before it sets.
  • When ready to serve, place two large scoops of vanilla ice cream into the animal cookie cone and top with pink sprinkles and rainbow nonpareils.
