Dipped cones make an awesome midnight snack for a million super-obvious reasons. How else can I explain all my pyjama-clad, late-night ice cream runs to the 7/11? But those factory-made ice creams are pretty bogus – the ice cream doesn’t really melt, and the chocolate layer is thin and weird. A homemade cone is better in every way, and they’re SO FUN to make. You can easily do this with any store-bought ice cream but, if you’ve come this far, why not make your own? My three favourite ice cream recipes. The basic technique I use comes from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home, an awesome book by Jeni Britton Bauer, which is full of other incredible flavours. Now get dippin’!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 litre ice cream
8 waffle cones
toppings, to sprinkle (optional)

Chocolate sauce

Quantity Ingredient
200g dark chocolate, (70% cocoa solids)
60ml coconut oil

Method

  1. First, take your ice cream and put a healthy amount into each cone. You want the ice cream to be firmly packed in there, but be careful not to crack the cones.
  2. Sit the cones in a cup or a pitcher (or a couple of them), and put them in the freezer for at least an hour.
  3. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together in a small bowl in the microwave. I do this on High (100%) for 20 seconds at a time, stirring after each burst, but you could also do it in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl isn't touching the water.
  4. Pour the melted mixture into a nice, deep container that is just wide enough to fit your cones. A smallish drinking glass or jam jar is pretty perfect. Working quickly, dip one cone at a time in the chocolate mixture, letting any excess drip away. Quickly sprinkle on any toppings, if using, and then put the cones back in the freezer to set for about an hour.
