DIY Sprinkle Ice Cream Cones

There are three things I really love: sprinkles, chocolate and ice cream. Put them all together and I’d say you have one winning combination! If you saw our 4th of July Party on Monday, then you may remember the oh so yummy sprinkle ice cream cones. Well, I wanted to share this quick tutorial to do them yourself.

Sprinkle Ice Cream Cones

Here are the supplies you will need:

Ice Cream Cones
White Chocolates {I like to buy mine from a bakery supply store or a craft store vs. “Almond Bark” – my Almond Bark always gets clumpy!}
Sprinkles in a Bowl
Wax Paper
Double Boiler
Spoon

Add your white chocolates to your double boiler on medium heat. I use a Pampered Chef Double Boiler on top of my pan, but you can always stack two pans and put water in the bottom one. Just be careful with them and also make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the top pan.

Stir your chocolates.

Continue to stir until they are nice and smooth.

Then dip the top edge of the cone in the white chocolate.

Then quickly dip the top of the cone in your sprinkles. These were for the 4th of July, so we used red, white and blue, but you could always change the color of the white chocolate and use any color of sprinkles! You may need to “roll” the cone a little to make sure all the white chocolate is covered.

That’s it! Now you have a super cute cone that adds an extra yummy treat!

They need to dry, so the cones with a pointy end need to stand up (I used a small juice cup). The regular cones with the flat bottom can stand up on their own on the wax paper.

Enjoy!

Have a great day!

4th of July Party

Yes, July 4th is coming very soon! If you are thinking of planning a party or small gathering of friends, we have some great new 4th of July themed party goods. This party is filled with red, white and blue with a touch of aqua to make it even more fun! This is a great theme for a birthday party or in this party, a fun ice cream social!




::Party Details::

This is a simple ice cream & desserts party. Ice cream & drinks were served on ice in a Radio Flyer wagon. You may remember my daughter’s 3rd birthday party where we put ice cream in small mason canning jars. This works great for ice cream in single servings for easy serving. Also, we had ice cream cones dipped in white chocolate with sprinkles {yummy!} Vanilla cupcakes with buttercream icing were also served. We made yarn pom “fireworks” to hang from fishing line around the party on bamboo poles. {We are limited on trees in the yard where the photos were taken, so we used the bamboo poles. If you have trees around the area where your party will be, I would recommend hanging the pom fireworks from the trees.} Oh, and a cute party favor… ring pops for the kids – “Let Freedom Ring!”
