And not just any waffle cone, but one with a chocolate rim and definite ice cream drumstick possibilities. Bring on the warm weather. With this tutorial from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, we're ready for ice cream cones!
The key to this whole operation really seems to be the chocolate. A little goes inside the cone to seal the tip and then the rim of the cone gets its own dunk. After you add the ice cream, another quick dip gives the cone a crunchy chocolate shell. Nuts, jimmies, or crushed candy are optional, but definitely recommended.
Jeni mentions using a bittersweet chocolate "BombeShell" sauce for her dipping needs. We suspect that this is similar to our favorite DIY Magic Shell recipe, which uses coconut oil to give the chocolate its perfect consistency and quick hardening "magic."
If you don't have your own awesome waffle maker like Jeni's, you can definitely still make your own with cookie tuiles or crêpes. This technique would work just as well with those kinds of ice cream cones as with the traditional waffle version.
