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.
