These chocolate peppermint ice cream cones are super-festive and perfect for serving your favorite ice cream this holiday season! Scroll down for video.
Last Christmas, an article on Snapchat alerted me to something wonderful: peppermint ice cream served in white chocolate and peppermint tipped waffle cones at Disney World. These cones are only available during the holiday season. Let me tell you – I was immediately smitten and decided that this Christmas I would have to recreate this at home.
Authentic? Who Cares?
Now, I haven’t actually had the Disney World version (actually Edy’s/Dreyer’s ice cream) but who cares? Peppermint ice cream in peppermint ice cream cones? Yes. Please. I decided to go for sugar cones instead of waffle cones because I like to be a little more moderate with my desserts but I feel pretty confident that sugar cones are just as great of a medium for chocolate peppermint ice cream cones as waffle cones.
These chocolate peppermint ice cream cones take less than ten minutes to make, and they pair perfectly with my no-churn peppermint ice cream (or store-bought, if you must). You need to make these!
