Homemade Ice Cream Cones

This post was contributed by The Olive Tree.

The times we are living in are interesting to say the least, so be sure to take the time to savor the simple moments and enjoy your family.

In this house, we like ice cream. like liiiiiiikkkkkkeee ice cream! Hiland Dairy is our favorite ice cream brand!

Sometimes we like ice cream so much that we make our own ice cream cones!

You’ll need:

  • 15 chocolate cookies
  • 1/4 cup of peanuts
  • ice cream cones
  • melted chocolate
  • your favorite Hiland Dairy ice cream

 In a food processor combine cookies + peanuts. Then set aside for later.

Next, melt chocolate and fill the bottom 1/4 of the ice cream cone with the chocolate. Reserve the rest of the chocolate for later.

Then fill your cone with your favorite Hiland Dairy ice cream! We love Moose Tracks, Cookie Overload ( which is what we used in these particular cones ) + plain vanilla.

Finally, dip your cones into reserves melted chocolate and then into the cookie mixture!! Freeze for about an hour before serving.

Pro tip: keep an eye on the children…they are known to sneak out to the freezer for samples.

Once cones are done gather up your loved ones and enjoy the sweetness of summer!  At the end of the day regardless of what is happening in the world family + ice cream can bring comfort and good conversation.
