Sprinkle-Dipped Ice Cream Cones | Family Economics
By Tori Tait
Ice cream is a favorite treat for most, but scoop it into a cone dipped in chocolate and covered in sprinkles and you’ve taken your cone to an entirely different (and delicious) level. My pantry always seems to have an excessive amount of both chocolate and sprinkles left over from holiday baking, so when this idea came to me it seemed like the perfect way to use them up. These sprinkle-dipped cones were easy to make and a huge hit with my family. Feel free to make these cones ahead of time and store them in Ziploc® Brand VersaGlass® Containers until you’re ready to serve.

Sprinkle-Dipped Ice Cream Cones
Prep: 10 minutes plus 10 minutes for drying
Yield: 12 cones
12 ice cream cones
1 pound melting chocolate
1 cup of your favorite sprinkles
Melt chocolate as directed on package. Once melted, dip the rim of the ice cream cone in chocolate and then immediately into the bowl of sprinkles. Lay the cone on wax paper until the chocolate dries and hardens. Serve by scooping ice cream into cone.
