Now that the warmer weather is rolling in across the country, it is unofficially ice cream season. Ok, so who am I kidding–ice cream season is year round across some of the country! However, here in New England, the our start of the ice cream cone season has just begun. That is why I thought it would be cute to make some Candy Coated Ice Cream Cones to celebrate my daughter’s birthday with.
This year, for my daughter’s birthday celebrations I thought it would be cute to take waffle cones and dip them in melted chocolate and decorate them with colorful candies. They just scream spring, and fun times! I mean who doesn’t love ice cream? I know we are all LOVING the Blue Bunny® ice cream flavors we recently picked up from Walmart. In fact, I made two different trips for more flavors since they were all so good!
Have you tried Blue Bunny® ice cream? It now comes in clear packaging which makes it fun for the kids and adults alike to see the flavor swirls or mix-ins inside. For my daughter’s birthday, we picked up some Blue Bunny® Homemade Vanilla, Blue Bunny® Mint Chocolate Chip, and Blue Bunny® Butter Pecan flavors. Honestly, they all looked amazing, but my daughter wanted those flavors for her and her friends.
Since I wanted the kids to have fun, I dipped the cones in the candy, but I also added extra candies in cupcakes liners for them to top their Blue Bunny® ice cream cones with. They had such a blast piling their cones high and adding spring-colored candies to their creations.
- Crushed Candies, Small Candies, chocolate chips
- Waffle Sugar Cones
- Melting chocolate
- Microwave safe bowl
- wax paper lined baking sheet
- Cupcake liners, scoops
After you melt your chocolate, dip each cone about an inch into the chocolate, and then into the candy coatings of your choice. Gently place upright on wax paper, and repeat all all your cones are coated. Allow the cones to harden for at least 30 mins.
