As summer glides by, we are making more use of our Ice Cream Maker. And this time I am loading up the simple vanilla with chocolate!

I Scream, You Scream!
There is truly nothing like homemade ice cream. So rich, creamy and delicious! It does require a little bit of effort but it’s so worth it! I love vanilla ice cream with chocolate goodies folded in. I use Trader Joe’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups, Chocolate Covered Almonds, and Dark Chocolate Chips.
Those Chocolate Dipped Cones:
Whether or not you make your own ice cream, using hand dipped cones is always a good idea, and the kids love helping! First, I roll the cones in chocolate…
…then dip them in chopped nuts or mini white chocolate chips. Aren’t they cute?!
Top with homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream made with my favorite Nielsen Massey Vanilla Paste (affiliate link) and you have the ultimate summer treat!
I really wanted to eat these but I had to wait till pictures were taken. Sometimes being a food blogger is hard.
The Recipe: Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with Hand Dipped Cones
Tips and what you will need: (affiliate links) You can use the ice cream recipe below or my simple no cook ice cream recipe! You will need an ice cream maker. I use this Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and love it. Vanilla paste rules! I always use Nielsen Massey Vanilla Paste instead of extract. I buy the quart, it’s a money saver! I use these Tovolo freezer tubs for handy dandy storage. I used Trader Joe’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups, Chocolate Covered Almonds, and Dark Chocolate Chips in this recipe.
Hand Dipped Cones
- 12 waffle cones
- 1 cup quality dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup your choice of chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips
- Melt chocolate according to package instructions in double boiler or microwave
- Transfer melted chocolate to shallow bowl and roll top of waffle cones in chocolate
- Roll in nuts or chocolate chips
- Set standing on wax paper (chocolate side down) till chocolate firms up
Enjoy the rest of your summer friends! ~ Linda Spiker
